Effect of Beam Depth and Longitudinal Reinforcement Ratio on Shear Strength of RC Beams

Abstract:

Article Preview

Seven beams were tested to investigate the effects of beam depth and longitudinal reinforcement ratio on the shear strength of reinforced concrete beams. To investigate the effects of beam depth on shear strength, beams of five different sizes were tested. Two beams were designed to investigate the shear behaviour of beams with small percentage of longitudinal reinforcement. In addition to an experimental investigation, a survey of data in the literature was performed to gain insight into the influence of beam depth and longitudinal reinforcement ratio. Based on test results and a data analysis, conclusions regarding the influence of beam depth and longitudinal reinforcement ratio on shear strength of reinforced concrete beams are presented herein.
