Effect of Tension, Compression and Lateral Reinforcement In Ductility Ratio in RC Flexural Members ;;;
The ductility capacity should be estimated for inelastic analysis and design of reinforced concrete flexural members. Therefore, to estimate the ductility capacity, the model of moment-curvature relationship of reinforced concrete flexural member is assumed in this study. The curvature, rotation, and displacement(deflection) of reinforced concrete cantilever beams are analyzed and tested. The analytical results are compared with the test results. According to the analytical and test results, the assumed model of moment-curvature relationship in this study is adequate in flexural analysis of reinforced concrete members because the analytical results are well agreed with the test results, and it is resonable to express the ductility capacity in the rotation or displacement ductility, Because the curvature ductility is the limited index in a certain section. It is investigated that the ductility capacity is proportional to lateral reinforcement and compression reinforcement and inversely proportional to tension reinforcement.
