High Strength Concrete, Shear Span to Depth Ratio. Reserve Strength, Shear Capacity


In this paper an experimental investigation is carried out on Sixteen HSC beams with constant width (125 mm) and varying depth (130mm and 100mm) by varying (i) shear span to depth ratio, (ii) the longitudinal reinforcement ratio and (iii) the minimum, maximum and no web reinforcement ratio were casted and tested to understand the shear behavior of the beams. The study is also carried for no web reinforcement. The load-deflection behavior and the failure pattern of the beams, ultimate shear strength and reserve shear strength are studied with varying a/d ratio, varying the cross-section and longitudinal reinforcement. The results obtained are compared with the different codal equations. Based on these observations, it can be concluded that, there are many parameters influencing the shear behavior of RC beams such as shear span to depth ratio (a/d ratio>2), depth of the beam and the percentage of the longitudinal reinforcement.
