Abstract:
Small size models of two concrete floor systems have been tested for their elastic and post-elastic behavior under in-plane shear action. Parameters studied include cyclic and monotonic loading, shear span aspect ratio, effect of gravity load and repair by epoxy injection method. This report describes the development of the model and techniques used in the testing. Preliminary test results and conclusions are also presented.
