Title: Deflections of Reinforced Concrete Beams With Confined Compression Zones
Author(s): K.T.S. Raja Iyengar, P. Desayi, and K. Nagi Reddy
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 279-294
Keywords: beams (supports); compression; computation; confined concrete; deflection; ductility; flexural strength; flexural tests; loads (forces); reinforced concrete; standards; stresses
Abstract:Reinforced concrete beams show increased ductility and reserve deflection capacity when the compression concrete is confined in circular spiral steel binders. In an investigation to study the influence of such confinement, eighteen reinforced concrete beams were tested in flexure and the deflections noted at all stages of loading.
