Title: High Strength Steel as Shear Reinforcement in Prestressed Concrete Beams
Author(s): E.W. Bennett and S.Y. Debaiky
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 231-248
Keywords: axial loads; beams (supports); cracking (fracturing); failure; high strength steels; prestressed concrete; reinforcing steels; research; shear strength; standards; stirrups; strains; stresses
Abstract:An experimental investigation was made to determine the stress developed in stirrups of varying type and strength in prestressed beams failing in shear, and to consider whether the present allowable maximum stress of 420 N.mm2 (60,000 psi) might be increased for steel with a higher yield stress.
