Abstract

This thesis studies the impact of reinforcement detailing on the behaviour of a reinforced concrete structure. Using a retaining wall as a case-study, the performance of two commonly used alternative reinforcement layouts (of which one is wrong) are studied and compared. Reinforcement Layout 1 had the main reinforcement (from the wall) bent towards the heel in the base slab. For Reinforcement Layout 2, the reinforcement was bent towards the toe. This study focused on the reinforcement details used in the D-region, and on how it impacts the capacity, joint efficiency and failure mode of the structure.
