EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF COMPRESSION REINFORCEMENT ON DOUBLY REINFORCED BEAM
Reinforced concrete (RC) is one of the most widely used building materials in the world. Civil engineering structures mostly utilize components constructed of RC in a variety of shapes and sizes. Reinforcing steel and concrete work together resist compression and tension, (tension and compression) respectively, in reinforced concrete; the reinforcing bar, however, also resists shear, tensile, and compressive stresses. Cross-sectional area of plain cement concrete is taken into account while performing analysis by any software; however reinforcement bar area is not taken into account. The aim of the study is to check behaviour of change in vary compression and tension reinforcement of the doubly reinforced beam from minimum to maximum as suggested in per IS456:2000 from minimum to maximum. Towards that experimentation designed with the experimental program consists of testing of 90 beams with varying depth and tension reinforcement with compression reinforcement (Model size 150mmX200mmX1500mm, 150mmX300mmX1500mm, 150X400X1500mm). The study focused on refers to effect of variation in compression reinforcement.
