Title

The 2015 ACI-DAfStb Database of Shear Tests on Slender Prestressed Concrete Beams Without Stirrups -- Overview and Evaluation of Current Design Approaches

Abstract

This paper presents the newly established ACI-DAfStb database of shear tests on slender prestressed concrete beams without stirrups subjected to point loads. From the 574 collected tests 214 tests remain for the comparison with shear design approaches after the control and selection procedures were applied. The main features of these tests are described. Subsequently, these tests are used to perform evaluations of the shear design procedures of EC2, fib Model Code 2010, and ACI 318-14.
