چکیده:

Limit to the tension reinforcement ratio ( ) in flexural high strength reinforced concrete (HSRC) members is based on the requirement that tension failure as sufficient rotation capacity are ensured at ultimate limit state. However , the provisionsfor the total amount of longitudinal reinforcement ratio ( and) are not associated with any rational derivation. In this paper, a quantitative measure to evaluate an upper limit to the compression reinforcement ratioRo’of flexural HSRC members is proposed. The quantitative criterion to Ro’can be derived from i) steel congestion and ii) considerations that are related to the diagonal compression bearing capacity of the members. In this paper it is shown that, when shear loading is dominant, the limit toisset by the diagonal compression criterion . parameters that effect this limit are deeply investigated and the expression were derived to provide an additional tool for a better design and assessment of the flexural capacity of HSRC members.
