Abstract

Reinforced concrete beams must have an adequate safety margin against bending and shear forces. Therefore, it will perform effectively during its service life. The aim of this work is to optimize the parameters of strength reinforced concrete beam, such as strength concrete, of stirrup spacing, and stirrup inclined presenting the techniques of characterization. An optimization of the reinforced concrete beam parameters was developed using the Response Surface Methodology (RSM). A flexural test was performed on reinforced concrete beam, and an empirical relationship was developed and used to predict the optimized strength reinforced concrete beam parameters.
