The shear strength of a rock joint, or discontinuity, is typically measured using a direct shear test where a load is applied initially, normally to the joint, before this later is sheared. During the test, the tangential force, t, recorded, to displace one part of the joint is recorded together with the actual displacement w. Shear Design Page 1 of 6 DESIGN FOR SHEAR Max.

  Shear strength is a material's ability to resist forces that can cause the internal structure of the material to slide against itself. Adhesives tend to have high shear strength. In engineering, shear strength is the strength of a material or component against the type of yield or structural failure where the material or component fails in shear.   The Mohr-Coulomb failure criteria are introduced, which state that soil shear strength is a combination of cohesion and friction. The direct shear test is introduced and explained. Rock mass failure caused by jointed plane is the common disaster in geotechnical engineering. Research on shearing property of jointed rock mass with prestressed anchor bolt and its mechanical property is an aspect for the stability analysis of rock slope and tunnel. This paper studies the stress and deformation of bolt and jointed plane, as well as anchored body and rock mass during shearing Author: Yufei Zhao, Hongtao Zhang, Yong Nie. In this study failure modes as well as shear strength capacity and seismic performance of prestressed beam column joints are examined in detail based on experimental results.

If the shear strength could be linked to a geotechnical description of the joints, then a first estimate of the shear strength could be made which would satisfY the immediate need of the design engineer. This research concentrated on classifYing joints in order to estimate the shear strength of joints at the early stage of an investigation. This development of improved precast prestressed concrete bridges involves amm-bined application of precast and situ-cast concrctc. Precast girders and a situ-cast deck slab can work together efficiently as a T-section only i[ adequate transfer of horizontal shear . Shear strength of discontinuities Introduction All rock masses contain discontinuities such as bedding planes, joints, shear zones and faults. At shallow depth, where stresses are low, failure of the intact rock material is minimal and the behaviour of the rock mass is controlled by sliding on the Size: KB.

The overall findings from these limited exploratory tests on shear strength of joints in precast segmental bridges are condensed in Fig.

In terms of the maximum loads developed, all epoxied joints behaved similarly and developed loads equal to those carried by the monolithic specimens. The behavior of precast concrete segmental box girder bridges at both serviceability and ultimate strength conditions is dependent on the behavior of the joints between the segments.

The behavior of precast concrete segmental box girder bridges at both serviceability and ultimate strength conditions is dependent on the behavior of the joints between the segments.

To accurately predict the bridge response throughout the complete range of loading, knowledge of joint behavior is by: Joints between segments in precast concrete segmental bridges (PCSB) require special attention in design and construction.

These joints introduce discontinuity in the bridge; meanwhile they must transmit compressive and shear stresses. Tests were carried out to assess the shear strength and deformation behavior of precast segmental bridge joints.

In this paper the beginning steps and the development of segmental bridges were presented through a brief history of segmental bridges. The basic types and construction methods of the segmental bridges were discussed, as well. The design concepts of the segments, types of the joints, and role of the shear keys were also by: 3.

The shear transfer of dry joints between UHPC segments is one of the major concerns due to the discontinuity and interruption of the reinforced bars. In this study, direct shear tests of UHPC joints were conducted. However, there is a lack of experimental data to estimate the shear strength of these joints.

In this study, serials of joints with the geometry close to an actual one, flat or keyed, dry or epoxied, single-keyed or multiple-keyed, have been tested using a direct shear experimental set-up.

Shear behavior and strength of the joints are : XM Zhou, N. Mickleborough, ZJ Li.

Joints are important to transfer shear force between bridge segments, and epoxied joints can provide shearing resistance because of their good shear property and durability.
