Abstract:
The influence of bond on the strength of reinforced and prestressed concrete beams is described. Test results described in the paper show that the presence of bond may induce shear failure. On the basis of this observation a theory for predicting the shear strength of concrete beams, is introduced. According to the theory the shear is carried partly by beam action, partly by arch action. It is shown, that the shear strength of beams without web reinforcement may be expressed as junction of the strength of the crack lamellas, the shear span, and the flexural cracking moment.
