Reinforced concrete construction--Testing.
Strains and stresses.
A total of five tests on biaxially loaded column specimens were conducted to investigate the complete behavior of load-deformation characteristics
Two specimens were tested with dial gages to obtain load-deflection curves and the other three specimens were tested with demec and strain gages to obtain load strain and moment-curvature curves. The strain gages were measured by weston bridge and deme-gages were measured by mechanical dial gage.
The above moment-curvature curves can be incorporated in several special purpose computer programs, which calculate the moment rotation and the load-deflection relationships for L-Shaped reinforced concrete columns under combined biaxial bending and axial compression. Calculated results were compared with the theoretical results from computer program and satisfactory agreement was obtained.
