Title: Analysis of Stresses in Concrete
Near a Reinforcing Bar Due to
Bond and Transverse Cracking
Author(s): Leroy A. Lutz
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 778-787
Keywords: bond (concrete to reinforcement) ;cracking (fracturing) ; deformation; finite element method; reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; slippage; stresses; structural analysis.
Abstract:An axisymmetric finite element procedure is used to analyze the problem of a steel bar embedded in a cylinder of concrete in an effort to obtain quantitative information on and an understanding of the stresses and deformations that occur in the vicinity of reinforcing bars after transverse cracks have formed.
