Title: Strength and Ductility of Corner Supported Two-Way Concrete Slabs containing Welded Wire Fabric
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:This paper forms part of an on-going research project at the University of New South Wales on the strength and ductility of reinforced concrete slabs containing low ductility reinforcement in the form of Class L welded wire fabric (WWF). Full range load tests on eleven two-way, corner-supported reinforced concrete slab panels containing either Class L WWF or Class N deformed bars are described. The slabs were subjected to transverse loads applied by a deformation controlled actuator in a stiff testing frame. The results of the tests are presented and evaluated, with particular emphasis on the strength, ductility and failure mode of the slabs.
