Author(s): F.K. Garas and D. Langan
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 235-266
Keywords: achorage (structural); beams (supports); caps (supports); circular prestressing; concrete slabs; cracking (fracturing); cylindrical shells; deep beams; end blocks; failure mechanisms; nuclear reactor containment; nuclear reactors; pressure vessels
Abstract:This paper describes on experimental studies into the behavior of deep restrained concrete elements under the action of high shear loads. The concrete elements were restrained by biaxial field stresses of varying intensities and gradients.
