Ultimate Strength Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Coupling Beams

The structural behaviour of reinforced concrete coupled shear wall structures is greatly influenced by the behaviour of their coupling beams. Flexural and shear (diagonal splitting) are the two main modes of failure of reinforced concrete coupling beams. The behaviour of coupling beams in shear (diagonal splitting) mode of failure is represented by a mathematical model, and a method for the ultimate strength analysis is presented. The proposed method of analysis for rc coupling beams is used to verify the results of nine beams tested by a previous investigator. N.K. Subedi
