Ultimate shear strength of FRP reinforced concrete beam is calculated using this equation:
(2) All RC beams using embedded steel angle trusses with different a/d ratios gave an increase in ultimate shear strength compared to control beams.
16 to 18 percent reduction in the ultimate shear strength was observed in frames with a single stud.
They studied in detail the overall behavior and ultimate shear strength. Horizontally curved steel plate girders of medium size with and without web openings were tested to failure (Shanmugam et al.
The former was approximately a line extended up to about 40-60% of ultimate shear strength of beams.
In this study, the woven sisal FRP sheets were bonded on on the surface of the RCC (reinforced cement concrete) beam specimens and the strengthened specimens were tested under a two-point bending configuration for their ultimate shear strength.
where a = 1/[D.sub.si], b = [[sigma].sub.n]/[[tau].sub.ult], and [[tau].sub.ult] is the ultimate shear strength of the critical state in the test; thus, b = 1/[[eta].sub.c].
Shear behavior and ultimate shear strength of reinforced concrete beams had been studied for last few decades.
The precise mode of failure and the ultimate shear strength for a single fastener is determined by the thickness and the embedding strength of the main and the side members and by the fastener diameter and yield moment.
The ultimate shear strength, i.e., the true shear stress at final separation, is important for the understanding of interface strengths in fiber reinforced polymers.
