Abstract:Extensive and sometimes comprehensive research on the ultimate strength of reinforced concrete members has been carried on almost since the first use of this structural material. This paper reviews briefly some of the more significant work in this field, both experimental and analytical. The scope is limited to statically determinate isolated reinforced concrete structural elements, divided for the purposes of discussion into five categories depending on the predominant type of stress to which they are subjected: (1) pure flexure, (2) axial compression, (3) combined axial compression and flexure, (4) combined flexure and shear, and (5) combined flexure, shear and axial com-pression. The paper is not intended to be comprehensive; only those tests and theories are discussed that serve best to give an over-all picture of the development and scope of research on ultimate strength of reinforced concrete members.
