This paper summarizes test results of an extensive experimental program undertaken to develop a rational design procedure for precast concrete slender spandrel beams. Experimental research findings presented in this paper are used to propose a rational design procedure that will be presented in a forthcoming companion paper. The research introduced significantly simplified detailing requirements for the end regions of precast concrete slender spandrel beams. Such regions are often congested… Expand

Behavior of compact L-shaped spandrel beams with alternative web reinforcement
Open web reinforcement has been shown to be an effective alternative to closed stirrups in the webs of slender precast concrete L-shaped spandrel beams subjected to combined shear and torsion. ForExpand
Development of Design Guidelines for Ledges of L-Shaped Beams
■ A procedure to evaluate the punching shear strength of the ledge was developed to provide an improved margin of safety for ledge capacity under a wide range of loading conditions. This paper isExpand
Ledge behavior and strength of long-span L-shaped beams
■ The experimental results demonstrate that increasing the global stress reduces ledge capacity, while the use of prestressing increases the capacity, as does concentrating the ledge reinforcement atExpand
Cost optimization of load carrying thin-walled precast high performance concrete sandwich panels
The paper describes a procedure to find the structurally and thermally efficient design of load-carrying thin-walled precast High Performance Concrete Sandwich Panels (HPCSP) with an optimalExpand
Long-Term Lateral Deflection of Precast, Prestressed Concrete Spandrel Beams
Slender precast concrete spandrels are used to increase cost effectiveness of precast concrete parking structures. They reduce the number of column lines in building floor plans and the number ofExpand
Ledge behavior and strength of short-span L-shaped beams
■ The study found that several parameters affected the ledge capacity but are not considered by the PCI procedure. Precast concrete L-shaped spandrel beams are commonly used in parking structures toExpand
THE SIZE EFFECT OF ADHESIVELY BONDED GFRP STIRUPS ON THE TORSIONAL BEHAVIOR OF SPANDREL BEAMS.
The durability of concrete elements reinforced with conventional steel has been questionable. Steel bars will eventually deteriorate due to corrosion especially in harsh environments and waterExpand
Análise e dimensionamento de vigas de seção “L” de concreto pré-moldado utilizando o Método das Bielas
TLDR
The presented method could be validated by comparing with results obtained through different alternative analytical methods present in the international literature, demonstrating that Strut-and-Tie Method is a highly competitive tool for design of precast concrete spandrel beams. Expand
