As a part of Acl’s recognition of the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976, a special international symposium was held for the express purpose of cross-pollinating U.S. and European ideas of concrete design, with particular reference to the ACI Building Code. The 20 papers presented in this volume were developed from the symposium and follow its format, covering limit states design, shear and torsion, and special concepts and new applications for prestressed concrete.

This paper describeds design provisions for shear in two-way slabs. Specifically, requirements of Chapter 11 of the 1971 ACI Building Code (1) are discussed. To assist in understanding the design procedure, the history of these provisions and test data that form the basis for some of the requirements are described.

The fire endurance of a floor, roof, wall, beam, or column is determined from results of standard (ASTM E119) fire tests. Standard fire tests have served the public and industry well but they have shortcomings and are expensive. Analytical and experimental research has led to the development of analytic methods for determining the fire endurance to concrete structures. Basic concepts of these methods, called rational design procedures, are discussed. An example to problem is used to illustrate the procedure.

The provisions of ACI 318-71 concerned with the design of reinforced concrete members for torsion are discussed. The background to these provisions is also discussed, in particular concerning interaction effects between torsion, shear and flexure. The paper concludes with a summary of the steps involved in the design of a reinforced concrete member to carry a significatn torsional moment in addition to shear and flexure, when using the 1971 edition of the ACI Building Code.
Historical development of reinforced, prestressed and partially prestressed concrete is reviewed. Methods and codes for design are discussed, with emphasis on strength and behavior requirements. The use of non-prestressed reinforcement for flexural members, members under combined shear and flexure, combined axial load and flexure are discussed, together with suggested approaches to their design and analysis.
