Abstract

The size effect is defined as the reduction on the some seismic performance evaluation parameters with increasing size. As an important bearing member, the seismic performance and size effect of RC beams have been studied extensively over the past few decades, most of them came to the same conclusion, in other words, the shear bearing capacity, bending capacity and ductility of specimens decrease with the increase of section size. Therefore, for the safety of the structure, some of the country's design code have considered the size effect, but most countries have not considered the effect of size effect, which needs to be taken seriously.
