Abstract:
The Modified Compression Field Theory which is capable of predicting the response of reinforced and prestressed concrete members in shear is summarized. The predictions of this theory are compared with the test results of two half-scale prestressed concrete bridge girders both before and after repair. An example of evaluating a typical bridge structure is also presented,The Modified Compression Field Theory which is capable of predicting the response of reinforced and prestressed concrete members in shear is summarized.
