Title: Influence of Transverse Reinforcement on Shear and Bond Strength
Author(s): J. R. Robinson
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 343-362
Keywords: bent-up bar, bond strength, CEB recommendations, design, high strength steel, reinforced concrete, reinforcement, shear strength, stirrup, transverse reinforcement
Abstract:Reports recent work of the subcommittee on shear of the European Concrete Committee. The functions of stirrup rein-forcement, bent-up bars, transverse ties, and some new types of transverse reinforcement are examined. Design methods for transverse reinforcement provided to prevent splitting are suggested. A broad program of future tests is suggested, aimed toward improved concepts and methods of design for shear and bond, with particular reference to members with high strength longitudinal reinforcement.
