Abstract

The ductility of reinforced concrete beams is very important, since it is essential to avoid a brittle failure of the structure by ensuring adequate curvature at the ultimate limit state. One of the procedures used to quantify ductility is based on curvatures, namely, curvature ductility. It is necessary to know the curvature ductility of singly reinforced high‐strength concrete (HSC) sections for determining a maximum permissible tensile reinforcement ratio or a maximum depth of the concrete compression area in design codes. The requirements of several codes and methods of prediction of the curvature ductility are based on the experimental results of normal strength concrete (NSC). The rules derived for NSC sections may not be appropriate for HSC sections, and verifications and modifications may be required for the evaluation of curvature ductility of HSC sections. In this study, the major factors affecting the curvature ductility of a singly reinforced HSC beam section are investigated. Based on numerical analyses, a parametric study has been carried out to evaluate the effects of various structural parameters on the curvature ductility of reinforced HSC beam sections.

Gelžbetoniniu siju plastiškumas yra labai svarbi savybe, apsauganti konstrukcija nuo staigios irties. Tam užtikrinti reikalinga atitinkama kreive, esant tinkamumo ribiniam būviui. Plastiškumas ivertinamas naudojant kreivines diagramas – plastiškumo kreives. Norint nustatyti didžiausia tempiamos armatūros kieki arba didžiausia gniuždomosios zonos aukšti, remiantis normomis reikia žinoti armuoto stipriojo betono (HSC) plastiškumo kreive. Kai kurios normos ir metodai plas‐tiškumo kreive nustato pagal paprastojo betono (NSC) eksperimentinius duomenis. Taisykles, skirtos paprastojo betono skerspjūvio plastiškumo kreivei nustatyti, gali netikti stipriajam betonui, todel reikia atlikti papildomus tyrimus ir metodu pakeitimus. Šiame darbe tiriami pagrindiniai veiksniai, darantys itaka stipriojo betono plastiškumo kreivei. Atliekant skai‐tini modeliavima, buvo ivertinti ivairūs skerspjūvio konstrukciniai parametrai, darantys poveiki stipriojo betono plas‐tiškumo kreivei.
