Title: Static Model Studies for Designing Reinforced Concrete Structures
Author(s): J.F. Lobo Fialho
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 215-250
Keywords: analogies; arch bridges; box beams; bridges (structures); concrete slabs; crack width and spacing; deflection; folded plates; frames; hyperbolic parabolic shells; loads (forces); measuring instruments; micro-concrete; models; moments; prestressed concrete
Abstract:In the last 20 years, model tests for the study of static structural problems have been extensively used at the Laboratorio Nacional de Engenharia Civil. Some of these models have been used to solve design problems of reinforced concrete structures difficult to approach by analytical methods. . .Some results of the model tests are compared with the observed behavior of the prototype in this summation of the author's experience.
