Experimental research and post-earthquake reconnaissance have demonstrated that reinforced concrete columns with light or widely spaced transverse reinforcement are vulnerable to shear failure, and in turn, axial failure during earthquakes. Based on experimental data, failure surfaces have been used to define the onset of shear and axial failure for such columns. After the response of the column intersects the failure surface, the shear or axial strength of the column begins to degrade. This… CONTINUE READING
