Because of the large area of the compression flange, the design of a T-section does not need, in most practical cases, to consider a doubly reinforced section. But, in case of precast units, when the width of the flange is small and the effective depth is limited, compression steel may be added.
In the shear box test, the specimen is not failing along its weakest plane but along a predetermined or induced failure plane i. This is the main draw back of this test. Moreover, during loading, the state of stress cannot be evaluated.
It can be evaluated only at failure condition i. Also failure is progressive. Direct shear test is simple and faster to operate. As thinner specimens are used in shear box, they facilitate drainage of pore water from a saturated sample in less time.
The angle of shearing resistance of sands depends on state of compaction, coarseness of grains, particle shape and roughness of grain surface and grading. It varies between 28o uniformly graded sands with round grains in very loose state to 46o well graded sand with angular grains in dense state.
The volume change in sandy soil is a complex phenomenon depending on gradation, particle shape, state and type of packing, orientation of principal planes, principal stress ratio, stress history, magnitude of minor principal stress, type of apparatus, test procedure, method of preparing specimen etc.
In general loose sands expand and dense sands contract in volume on shearing. There is a void ratio at which either expansion contraction in volume takes place.
This void ratio is called critical void ratio. Expansion or contraction can be inferred from the movement of vertical dial gauge during shearing. The friction between sand particle is due to sliding and rolling friction and interlocking action.Roto-Shear customers declare that it is the most durable and reliable crop cutter they have ever used, outperforming everything else on the market.
Merlin Badry has an instinct for inventing practical solutions to common problems.
Box , Bourgault Drive. shear thickening is a highly nonequilibrium, dissipative state, though, a full understanding had to await the development of new theoretical and experimental tools.
Volume change in shear box As well as measuring the shear force and normal force during the shear box test. the cohesion may be less than apparent in the laboratory test and may even be zero. the volume of the soil is increasing (dilation).5/5(6).
A direct shear test is a laboratory or field test used by geotechnical engineers to measure the shear strength properties of soil or rock material, or of discontinuities in soil or rock masses.
 . Shear strength components of concrete under direct shearing. For this class of problem, shear friction approach is the preferred method of solution. Practical applications of direct shearing are found in design of composite concrete beams, and shear box tests.
