In-Plane Force Effect of Reinforced Concrete Beam with Elastic Supports
The bearing capacities of one-way reinforced concrete beams with elastic supports are investigated in this paper. According to the nonlinear characteristics of the beams, the basic equations based on plastic theory of concrete are derived by considering the in-plane force effects that aroused by the constraints of supports when the beams deforming. It is indicated that the calculation results are in good agreement with experimental datum, and the influences of different supports on the bearing capacities of the beams are quantitatively given for the first time.
