Abstract

This paper investigates the applicability of plasticity based models for shear strength prediction of reinforced concrete members with external prestressing. Shear tests collected from the literature are compared with calculations according to the Variable Strut Inclination Method as well as the upper bound Crack Sliding Model. Reasonably agreements with test results have been found, espessically when the effectiveness factor proposed in the Eurocode 2 is used.
