Abstract:
Tests on 11 beams were made to study the influence on strength and behavior of beams of: bond between tendon and concrete, distribution of longitudinal reinforcement, presence or absence of web reinforcement, and the moment-shear ratio. A difference in the role of the last factor in single span and continuous beams is discussed.
