Experimental evaluation of local bond behaviour of deformed reinforcing bars in concrete structures.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil & Natural Resources Engineering, 2015)
This thesis addresses the topic of local bond behaviour in RC structures. The mechanism of bond refers to the composite action between deformed steel reinforcing bars and the surrounding concrete. Bond behaviour is an open ...
Effects of Bond Deterioration Due to Corrosion on Seismic Performance of Reinforced Concrete Structures
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
Reinforced concrete structures deteriorate throughout their lifetime. This is particularly apparent in structures subjected to aggressive environments, which results in corrosion of reinforcing steel. Designers make ...
The Mechanics and Design of a Non-tearing Floor Connection using Slotted Reinforced Concrete Beams
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
Ductile plastic hinge zones in beams of reinforced concrete frames are known to incur extensive damage and elongate. This ‘beam elongation’ can inflict serious damage to adjacent floor diaphragms, raising concerns of life ...
