Title: Stress Concentrations Caused by Reinforcing Bar Deformations

Author(s): I.C. Jhamb and J.G. MacGregor

Publication: Special Publication

Volume: 41

Issue:

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

Date: 1/1/1974

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.
