Title: High-Strength Deformed Steel Bars for Concrete Reinforcement
Author(s): Sidney A. Guralnick
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 241-282
Abstract:Results obtained from the testing to destruction of 42 T-beams reinforced with metallurgically-produced high-strength steel deformed bars are presented. Both flexural and shearing failures occurred and the results are compared with the ultimate strength design procedure given in the appendix of the 1956 ACI Building Code and certain other design procedures. Deflections of test beams are compared with values obtained by use of existing methods for computing deflections. Crack data is also reported and evaluated.
