Experiment-1: Test of Diagonally Reinforced Coupling Beam at Aspect Ratio 2.4 with Full Confinement (CB24F)
Experiment Type: Large Scale
Description: This experiment consists of cyclic testing of a diagaonlly reinforced concrete coupling beam with confinement around the entire cross section. This confinement represents the new detailing option introduced in ACI 318-08. The beam has aspect ratio (ln/h) 2.4 to represent typical residential construction. The specimen is designated as CB24F or Beam 1. The purpose of the experiment is to directly compare the new confinement option to the old confinement option (confinement around diagonals only). Results indicate that the new detailing option provides strength and ductility equivalent to older detailing options.
