Linking Concrete Tensile Performance and Seismic Response of Fiber Reinforced Concrete Coupling Beam

Steel-Fiber Concrete Link Beams Perform Well in Tests
A recent series of dynamic tests demonstrates that there are several types and doses of steel-fiber reinforcement that can be used in performance-based seismic design of coupling beams-headers that link openings in concrete shear walls-to reduce rebar congestion.
