Abstract:
Proceeding along the lines suggested at the last convention, in order to secure data of value as to the actual carrying capacity or stresses in reinforced concrete structures designed according to current practice and particularly to throw some light on important questions relating to the design of such structural members at present more or less indeterminate theoretically, the Committee proposes a series of tests, the data from which, if secured under satisfactory conditions, will greatly assist the concrete user in taking every advantage of the material and still have a conservative design. It is suggested that a series of tests be arranged and carried out on buildings either during construction or after completion, so that the information may be obtained under conditions which will show the actual stress in structures under working loads.
