Abstract: A Deep beam is having a greater depth comparable to the span length. According to Is.456-2000 provisions deep beam is defined as span to depth ratio less than 2.0 for simply supported beam and 2.5 for continues beams. This experimental setup consists of specimens of length 1200 mm X 200 mm X 600 mm, 1100 mm X 200 mm X 600 mm and 1000 mm X 200 mm X 600 mm. The flexural, shear, crack pattern of reinforced concrete deep beams with different l/D ratios. The width of bearing plate, depth, the percentage of tension reinforcement, and the percentage of vertical and horizontal shear reinforcement are constant under three-point loading using loading frame are tested. The experimental results show the Load Vs Deflection and crack width of the beam. The experimental results are compared with code results.
Keywords: Bearing Plate, Crack Pattern, Flexural, Shear, Crack Width.
