Abstract

The experimental program presented in this paper deals with the influence of the spatial variation of the concrete strength in width direction on the shear capacity of one-way slabs. Two test series are designed, in which the spatial variation of the concrete strength is exaggerated. The influence of the concrete strength variation on the inclined cracking load, failure mode, crack development and other aspects of one-way slabs is examined in the tests.
