A collaboration between University of Bath, Imperial College
London and The Concrete Centre.
This virtual lab video and the accompanying tutorial sheets
assist with the teaching of reinforced concrete design, the
resource allows students to understand and the behaviour of typical
reinforced concrete elements loaded up to failure.
Four beam specimens are presented consisting of over and under
reinforced beams loaded in flexure and beams loaded with and
without shear stirrups loaded in shear.
Two columns are also presented, one short and one slender.
The accompanying tutorial sheets provide detail sheets on
specimen design and material properties. The data provided can be
used to predict and explain the behaviour of each method.
Standard test methods have been used to evaluate the concrete
strength based upon the compressive strength of cylinders
specification cast using the same concrete as used in each beam or
