Title: Flexural Stresses in Rectangulare Reinforced Concrete Curved Members
Author(s): R.H. Dawoud, Milad M. Hanna, and Adel Fareed
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 237-242
Keywords: beams (supports); bending moments; curved beams. Elastic analysis; rectangular beams; reinforced concrete; stresses; structural analysis; tensile stress.
Abstract:Presents an elastic stress analysis for rectangular reinforced concrete curved beams with circular axes subject to pure bending. The analysis deals with rectangular sections of the neutral axis and the calculation of maximum stresses in concrete and steel is given in chart form. The limiting case for beams with straight axes is also presented for comparison. If the radius of curvature of the member is small compared to the beam depth, the suing linear beam theory.
