Seismic interaction of flexural ductility and shear capacity in reinforced concrete columns
Rachel Howser, A. Laskar and Y.L. Mo

 
Abstract
    The seismic performance of reinforced concrete (RC) bridge columns is a significant issue because the interaction of flexural ductility and shear capacity of such columns with varied amounts of lateral reinforcement is not well established. Several relationships between flexural ductility and shear capacity have been proposed by various researchers in the past. In this paper, a parametric study on RC bridge columns is conducted using a nonlinear finite element program,
 
Key Words
