Strength and Behavior of Anchor Bolts Embedded Near Edges of Concrete Piers
1977 ... G.B. Hasselwander [and three others] · The primary objective of this investigation was to evaluate the effects of bolt diameter, embedment length, clear cover, and bearing area on the behavior of high-strength anchor bolts. Both model and full-scale tests were conducted. In addition, a series of exploratory full-scale tests were run

The Shear Strength of Reinforced Concrete Beam-Column Joints
1977 ... by Donald F. Meinheit and James O. Jirsa. · Beam-column joints were subjected to deformation to establish basic shear behavior. Fourteen interior type connections with reinforcing bars continuous through the joint were tested. The effects of column reinforcement, column load, joint hoop reinforcement, lateral beams, concrete

The Strength of Anchor Bars : A Reevaluation of Test Data on Development Length and Splices
1975 ... C.O. Orangun, J.O. Jirsa, John E. Breen · An equation has been developed for calculating lengths of lap splices of deformed bars from a nonlinear regression analysis of test results of beams with lap splices. It reflects the effect of length, cover, spacing, bar diameter, concrete strength, transverse reinforcement, and moment

The Performance of Lapped Splices Under Rapid Loading
1975 ... T. Rezansoff [and three others] · The impact or dynamic response and resistance of structures or structural components has been of increasing interest in recent years. The failures of lapped splices at the bases of some concrete highway support structures during the San Fernando earthquake led to questions as to the suitability

The Behavior of Multiple Lap Splices in Wide Sections
1975 ... Mark A. Thompson [and three others] · In most reinforced concrete cantilever retaining walls, construction procedures require some type of splicing of the reinforcing steel. Economics often dictate the use of a lap splice. Since a retaining wall has no redundancy, understanding of splice behavior becomes critical to the design

A Guide to the Selection of High-Strength Anchor Bolt Materials
1974 ... G.B. Hasselwander, James O. Jirsa, John E. Breen · An evaluation of the suitability of various high-strength materials for anchor bolt applications was made. A selected group of materials meeting ASTM Standard Specifications were tabulated. Based on the material properties, availability, and cost, several of the materials were
