Shear Strength of Lightweight Concrete T-Beams Without Web Reinforcement

There are at present no design data on the shear resistance of reinforced concrete T-beams made with UK lightweight aggregates and natural sand. This paper presents comprehensive test data on the shear strength of T-beams without web reinforcement and made with Lytag coarse aggregates and sand. The effect of three parameters, i.e. concrete strength, steel percentage, and a/d ratio on shear strength, is reported. R.N. Swamy and G.H. Lambert
