    Title: The Effect of Scale on the Resistance of Reinforced Concrete Beams to Shear (NEES-2012-1169)Year Of Curation: 2015Description: Tests of reinforced concrete beams have shown that as the depth increases, unit shear strength decreases. Researchers have warned of the potential...

  2. An Investigation of the Unit Shear Strength of Geometrically Scaled Reinforced Concrete Beams (NEES-2010-0994)

    23 Mar 2015 | Contributor(s):: Matthew Murray, Santiago Pujol

      This study examines the influence of beam size on the shear capacity of geometrically scaled reinforced concrete beams without web reinforcement. The experimental program included six 12-in. deep beams and two 30-in. deep beams. All components of the large beams were geometrically...
