Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 514-520
Keywords: Building codes, cracking (fracturing), deep
beams, deflection, lightweight aggregate
concretes, reinforced concrete, research,
shear strength, span-depth ratio, structural
design, ultimate strength method, web
Abstract:Reports tests on 38 simply supported deep beams, with L/D ratio range from 1 to 3 and clear-shear-span/depth ratio x/D from 0.23 to 0.7; effects of 8 types of web reinforcement. Found that ultimate strength formulas suitable for normal weight concrete deep beams not neces sarily applicable to deep beams of lightweight aggregate concretes.
