Abstract:
A series of tests on T-beams of 10-ft span with reinforcing bars of various size, arrangement and manner of anchorage indicates that while bond may be depended on at the usual stresses it cannot be depended on at those high stresses which might prove economical. With proper anchorage it is possible to develop the elastic limit of any commercial steel, and with proper bending and anchorage the question of bond is eliminated and shear stresses are governed only by the strength of the concrete in diagonal compression.
