web reinforcement

web reinforcement

1. Steel bars, rods, etc., placed in a reinforced concrete member to resist shear and diagonal tension.
2. Additional metal plates connected to the web, 1 of a metal beam or girder to increase the strength of the web, 1.

Muttoni and Ruiz (2007) and Souza (2008) have shown that the addition of minimum web reinforcement, which is usually mandatory in deep beams by structural codes, may cause a great distortion of the idealized truss using STM.
This parameter shall be taken as no greater than 8.3 MPa unless minimum web reinforcement has been provided in accordance with SNI 2847:2013 Sections 11.4.6.3, 11.4.6.4 or 11.5.5.2.
where [A.sub.v] = total cross sectional area of web reinforcement within a distance S, for single loop stirrups and [A.sub.v] = 2[A.sub.s].

These blades are usually manufactured from two shells, which are bonded on an internal spar or shear web reinforcement.
The loads travel from the suspended girder web reinforcement plate to the lower hanger pin and into the hanger plates.
Then, the concrete web reinforcement was determined to cover, together with the wythes, the objective ultimate bending moment.
Shear strength of steel fiber-reinforced concrete beams without web reinforcement. ACI Structural Journal, v.
Kim and Park [8] and Chandrasheker Rao et al [9] had predicted the shear strength of reinforced concrete beams without web reinforcement. The present paper deals with the shear behavior of high strength concrete beams with various shear span to depth ratio and volume fraction of fibers, without web reinforcement.
The shear strength of RC beams without web reinforcement was observed to be influenced by several variables, such as concrete strength ([f'.sub.c]), shear span-to-depth ratio (a/d), beam depth (d), longitudinal reinforcement ratio ([[rho].sub.f]), and beam width ([b.sub.w]) [5, 6].
Gunneswara Rao [9] proposed semi-empirical formulae in SI units for determining the balanced percentages for longitudinal reinforcement and web reinforcement.
[T.sub.swy] is the tensile force of web reinforcements in the tensile zone which can be defined as [T.sub.swy] = [[rho].sub.w][b.sub.w] ([h.sub.w0] - [x.sub.y])[f.sub.yw]/2, where [[rho].sub.w] is the reinforcement ratio of web reinforcement; [b.sub.w] is the cross section width; [h.sub.w0] is the effective height of the cross section; [x.sub.y] is the depth of compressive zone; and [f.sub.yw] is the yield stress of web reinforcement.
