tension reinforcement

Reinforcement designed to carry tensile stresses such as those in the bottom of a simple beam.

It occurs when the stress in the tension reinforcement reaches the representative strength values on the verge of its yield [f.
c1], and tension reinforcement can work both before and on the border of yield: [[epsilon].
Since strain gauge attached to extreme tensile and compression fiber failed before experiencing peak load, strain of compression and tension reinforcement were used.
The HCB consists of three parts: a shell made out of a fiberglass-reinforced polymer, a concrete arch within the shell, and tension reinforcement tying the ends of the arch," say Van Nosdall, Moen, Cousins and Wollmann-Roberts.
The cross section of needed tension reinforcement is [A.
In the case of RC beam the initial cross section of tension reinforcement [A.
The main factors influencing this action are shear span-to-depth ratio, compressive strength of concrete and area of tension reinforcement.
The effects of compressive strength, shear span-to-depth ratio and the percentage of longitudinal tension reinforcement ratio on the proposed cracking shear strength and ACI 318 Building Code equations are discussed as follows.
