Abstract:
Tests on longitudinally reinforced concrete sections without web reinforcement are reported. The strength of reinforced concrete T-beams in combined direct shear and torsion are compared to the strength of similar sections in direct shear alone. Theoretical torsion strengths, based upon a plastic theory, are in fair agreement with experimental results at first diagonal cracking but are on the safe side.
