Keywords: beams (supports); crack width and spacing; cracking (fracturing); deep beams; deflection; finite element method; loading rate; loads (forces); reinforced concrete; reinforcng steels; shear strength; span depth ratio; strains; stresses; structural analysis
The primary objective of this investigation is to study the effect of various supporting and loading conditions on the cracking behaviour, major crack width, deflection, arch action, and ultimate shear strength of deep beams.
