Shear strength of non-shear reinforced concrete elements: Part 1-Statically indeterminate beams

    Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review


    The report deals with the shear strength of statically indeterminate reinforced concrete beams without shear reinforcement. Solutions for a number of beams with different load and support conditions have been derived by means of the crack sliding model developed by Jin- Ping Zhang.This model is based upon the hypothesis that cracks can be transformed into yield lines, which have lower sliding resistance than yield lines formed in uncracked concrete.Proposals have been made on how the derived standard solutions may be applied to more complicated cases, such as continuous beams, beams with combined loading, prestressed beams and beams with different reinforcement area at top and bottom.
