Title: Reinforced Concrete Connection Hysteresis Loops
Author(s): William H. Townsend and Robert D. Hanson
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 351-370
Keywords: anchorage (structural); axial loads; beams (supports); bending (reinforcing steels); bond (concrete to reinforcement); columns (supports); connections; cracking (fracturing); cyclic loads; deterioraton; ductility; dynamic loads
Abstract:Twenty-two reinforced concrete beam-column T-shaped connections were constructed using the same strength of material and geometrical configuration for each specimen. Test loading conditions were chosen to represent earthquake loading producing steel strains well beyond yield.
