Title: Reinforced High-Performance Concrete (Hpc) Beams In Shear
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:An analytical and experimental investigation on the shear strength of high-performance concrete (HPC) beams with vertical shear reinforcement was carried out. The analytical work involved developing a rational theory based on truss analogy capable of predicting the response and shear strength of such beams subjected to combined bending moment and shear force. In the experimental programme, forty-eight reinforced HPC beams were tested. The theory predicted the shear strength of the test beams well. It was used further to predict the shear strength of a total of 69 test beams, including those from other preceding studies. Comparisons of shear strength were also made with the shear strength predictions by the shear design provisions contained in the Australian Standard AS 3600 (1994), American Concrete Institute Building Code ACI 318-95, Eurocode EC2 Part 1 and Canadian Standard CSA A23.3-94. The theory and AS3600 method correlated well with the test results.
