Merge the beam shear database efforts of members of 445 for the development and distribution of complete (collection) databases for researchers and of reduced size (selected) databases for use in the evaluation of design code provisions; 5. Work and coordinate with other ACI committees on topics of close interests such as ACI committees: 352, 421, and 446 6. Work closely with other national and international agencies to advance the state-of-the-art of shear and torsion in structural concrete; 7.
