Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Beams Under Bending, Shear And Torsion Without Web Reinforcement

Pant Avinash S., Parekar Suresh R.

Full text: PDF


The results of six bending, shear and torsion tests on steel fiber reinforced rectangular concrete beams without web reinforcement are presented and discussed. The variable parameter is longitudinal steel at bottom only. The top reinforcement, aspect ratio and volume fraction of steel fibers kept constant for all the beams. From the tests conducted, it was found that the torsional strength is independent of longitudinal reinforcement. The experimental results were compared with the modes of failure proposed by Mansur and Mansur and Paramasivam under combined bending, shear and torsion for SFRC beams and Dr. V. Ramakrishnan and Vijayarangan for beams without web reinforcement under combined torsion and bending. It is shown that experimental results compare favorably with the theoretical predictions.
