Title: Effect of Surface Characteristics on Fatigue Strength of Reinforcing Steel
Author(s): I.C. Jhamb and J.G. Mac Gregor
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 139-168
Keywords: axial loads; bars; deformations (reinforcing steels); fatigue (materials); fatigue tests; flexural strength; reinforcing steels; rusting; surface roughness
Abstract:An experimental investigation was undertaken to study the effect of the deformations, decarburization of bar surface, rust and mill scale and grade of steel on fatigue strength of reinforcing bars under repeated axial loading in air. The experimental data was analysed statistically.
