Abstract : Ten one-way reinforced concrete slabs were tested, primarily to investigate the effects of shear stirrups and stirrup details on the load-response behavior of the slabs. The slabs were rigidly restrained at the supports and were loaded with a uniformly distributed pressure. Support rotations between 13 and 21 degrees were observed. The test series was unique due to the uniform loading and the large support rotations experienced for the conventionally reinforced concrete one-way slabs. The results of these tests indicate that criteria on shear reinforcement found in current blast-resistant design manuals are overly conservative.
