Ultimate Load Analysis of RC Beam under Combined Action of Axial, Bending and Shear Loading
Based on Timoshenko beam theory, a section model for the ultimate load analysis of RC beam under combined action of axial force, bending and shear force is presented in this paper. Especially, the transverse deformation is considered with the appearance of diagonal cracks. The validity of the model is established by comparing its results with several tests. These simulations include ultimate bending moments of pure bending tests and ultimate shear loads with different shear-span ratios. The analytical results show excellent agreement with experimental data.
