Title: T-Beam Design and the 1951 ACI Building Code

Abstract:Describes the design of a T-beam by use of ACI 318-51 and demonstrates that it is not simply the substitution of the new bond and shear values for those of the 1947 code. A balance must be achieved between concrete and steel and this is done by proportioning the beam so that steel required for positive movement can be used, when extended into the support, for compression reinforcement.
