Behaviour of RC Beams with non-bonded flexural reinforcement: A numerical experiment
Gregoria M.Kotsovou and Gerasimos M.Kotsovos

    The present work is concerned with a numerical investigation of the behaviour of reinforcedconcrete beams with non-bonded flexural tension reinforcement. The numerically-established behaviour of such beams with and without transverse reinforcement is compared with its counterpart of similar beams with bonded reinforcement. From the comparison, it is found that the development of bond anywhere within the shear span inevitably leads to inclined cracking which is the cause of
