Title: Shear Capacity of Lightweight Concrete Beams
Author(s): Don L. lvey and Eugene Buth
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 634-643
Keywords: beams (structural);building codes;diagonal tension;lightweight aggregate concretes;lightweight aggregates;reinforced concrete;shear;spltting tensile strength
Abstract:Twenty-six lightweight concrete beams were tested to provide additional information on the shear capacity of structural lightweight concrete and to evaluate the 1963 ACI Building Code requirements for shear. The beams tested in this program are compared with the present shear design formulas and with other design approaches that are being considered as modifications or changes to the 1963 ACI Code design procedure.
