A change in basic assumptions is proposed for ultimate strength design of beams with comprekon reinforcement. It is shown that the present method is inconsistent for .shallow beams and slabs with large percentages of com- pression fiteel. A revked form of Eq. (A3) in Section A606 of the ACI Building Code (ACI 318-56) is suggested which permits incorporation of the change in assumptions.
