Abstract

In view of the increasing need of housing these days, the authorities in Malaysia have become interested to use efficient, faster and safer methods of building. One of such methods is by adopting Industrialized Building System (IBS) started in 2002. It was found from the last earthquake in Turkey that most collapse of precast buildings was caused by failure of connections. Therefore, an extensive research should be carried out to improve precast concrete connections. A common simple precast concrete connection is corbel. Reinforced concrete corbels are structural elements widely used in practice. The complex response of these elements is described in design codes in a simplified manner. These formulations are not sufficient to show the real behavior. Finite element models were carried out on 254 × 405 × 254-mm reinforced concrete corbels. Ratio of primary and secondary reinforcement was varied. The results indicate that corbels with neither primary reinforcement nor secondary reinforcement fail suddenly and catastrophically. It seems that the mode of all failures was by diagonal splitting. Increase in ratio of primary and secondary reinforcement generally resulted in enhancement both strength and ductility of corbels. This increase also enhances the ultimate shear load until the ratio of primary and secondary reinforcement reach 0.35% and 0.30% respectively.
