Dimensional analysis is employed in deriving expressions for the initial diagonal cracking load and the ultimate strength in shear of simply supported concrete beams with tensile reinforcement only. These expressions, which in-clude size effect, are converted into nomographs for ease of application. This study of Btatic strength includes results from tests of 105 beams, 42 of which were tested by the authors. Fatigue tests were made on 30 reinforced concrete beams with tension reinforcement only. These beams were simply supported on a span of 60 in. and loaded at the third points. Statistical studies of the fatigue behavior with regard to initial diagonal cracking and final failure are included.
