Title: Shear Strength Decay in Reinforced Concrete Columns Subjected to Large Deflection Reversals (NEES-2014-0905)
Year Of Curation: 2014
Description: This project undertook the investigation of the mode of failure for reinforced concrete columns subjected to several reversals of loading to deflections larger than the yield deflection. A total of 12 columns were tested in order to emphasize the need to consider the possible reduction in shear strength of reinforced concrete members loaded to deflections which correspond to strains in the concrete compression zone leading to splitting cracks.
