Deep R/C Beams Subjected to Cyclic Loading
Deep reinforced concrete beams subjected to quasi-static loading have been studied both experimentally and analytically [1, 2]. The primary purpose of these studies has been to examine the behavior of such structures during earthquake. It is known that static analysis and static testing are not adequate in representing dynamic behaviors of structures. However, dynamic load cannot be easily simulated or measured in the laboratory. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to use general purpose computer programs to simulate the behavior of the deep R/C beams under dynamic loading. The information from this study will be used in the future study of R/C structures under seismic loading.
