Title: Stress Concentrations Caused by Reinforcing Bar Deformations
Author(s): I.C. Jhamb and J.G. MacGregor
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 169-182
Keywords: bars; deformations (reinforcing steels); deformed reinforcement; fatigue (materials); fatigue tests; finite element method; reinforcing steels; research; stress analysis; stress-strain relationships
Abstract:Because research on metal fatigue has shown that fatigue failures tend to occur in regions of high stress concentrations, finite element stress analyses were used to determine stress concentration factors (Kt) for deformed reinforcing bars.
