Reinforced Concrete Beam Shear Failure

Reinforced Concrete Beam Shear Failure


It has been suggested in a previous work that the causes of shear failure exhibited by reinforced concrete (RC) beams are associated with the stress conditions in the region of the path along which the compressive force is transmitted from support to support. 

The work described in this paper presents experimental evidence supporting the above concept. The work is based on a comparative study of the behaviour of concrete beams reinforced in compliance with this concept and that of beams reinforced in compliance with current design procedures.
This video shows the shear failure of reinforced concrete beam. This is how shear strength of RCC beam is tested.
