Abstract:
This paper describes a numerical investigation of the impact of steel ductility and support settlement on the strength and ductility of continuous one-way reinforced concrete slabs containing low ductility welded wire fabric (WWF). A finite element model is developed for the investigation using the software ATENA and the results of a series of concurrent laboratory experiments are used to calibrate the numerical solution. The ductility of the main flexural reinforcement has a profound impact on the ultimate load behaviour of continuous one-way slabs subjected to support settlement, particularly when the reinforcement consists of cold drawn welded wire fabric.
