Time-Dependent Deflections of Reinforced Concrete Beams Revisited

  title={Time-Dependent Deflections of Reinforced Concrete Beams Revisited},
  author={Raed M. Samra},
The author proposes a method to describe the stress, strain, and deflection behavior of reinforced concrete beams. The role of compression reinforcement is included through an enhanced rational approach and an iterative procedure that are designed to converge rapidly, usually within two to three cycles. Creep deflections are calculated by applying a direct procedure similar to that now used in American Concrete Institute (ACI) 1318-95 to compute immediate deflections. Thus, the common practice… CONTINUE READING
