Experiments on large-scale reinforced concrete members like beams or slabs with large effective depths are challenging and not least due to extensive material and financial efforts rarely performed. But, results from such experiments are strongly needed, as decisive size effects affect shear and punching shear failure types. At the Institute of Con...

... Considering all four ranges, a piece-wise defined function of the average steel strain is available that covers all phenomenological aspects introduced above. Elsewhere, it has already been applied to compute realistic deformations of a wide variety of RC structures [52][53][54]. For this purpose, the average steel strain must first be converted into an average curvature and then (numerically) integrated. ...
