Abstract: Reinforced concrete deep beams are different compared to normal beam because of compression bottle shape is happen after the diagonal crack has occurred. An experimental program consists of four specimens are carried out to investigate the shear strength behavior of reinforced concrete sandwich deep beam concealed with the variation of insulation pad depth (200 mm, 300 mm and 400 mm). Constantly maintained effective length, depth, the width of the specimens, width of bearing plates, longitudinal reinforcement as 1% and vertical and horizontal reinforcement as 0.15%. The shear span to depth ratio of deep beams is 0.95. The study also aims at examining the influence of longitudinal shear reinforcement along with vertical and horizontal shear reinforcement on the shear strength, shear ductility of RC sandwich deep beams of insulation pads placed at different depths. The main outcome of these study is to compare load vs. deflection.
