oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - The strength increase of concrete beams with different reinforcing bars

Volume 19, Issue 6
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The 2011 "Reinforced Concrete and Masonry Design III" class (National Diploma in Civil Engineering at the University of Johannesburg) embarked on a research project to demonstrate the increased strength of similar-sized concrete beams due to the increased cross-sectional area of reinforcing bars. The theoretical bending moment resistance of the beams was compared to the experimentally tested bending moment endured by the beam.
