AbstractThis research discusses experimentally the shear strain of the reinforcement concrete hybrid beams composed of reactive powder concrete (RPC) at the peripheral and conventional concrete (CC) at the core beams under torsional strength tests. Shear strain is usually represented by is explained as the tangent of the angle and is be like the length of deformation at its maximum divided by the length of perpendicular in the plane of the force application. Twelve reinforced concrete beams are tested having the following dimensions: 100, 200 and 1500mm as width, height and length respectively with thickness of the RPC concrete were 40 and 20mm. The beams were cast and tested to failure in torsion by using two opposite cantilevers steel arms that contribute to transferring the torque to the centre of the beams. Two control (CC and RPC) beams were poured, and the ten other beams were all poured as hybrid ones. Experimental data of the three strain gauges locations in the middle of the beams in one of the side surface face, to calculate shear strain (). The percentage of shear strain at ultimate torsion capacity was reduced by about 76% for RPC (RP) to CC (NC) beams and 63% for hybrid beam (H1) to CC (NC) beam.
