With discussion by Edward G. Nawy, H.A. Sawyer, M.Z. Cohn, and E.F.P. Burnett and C.W. Yu. An attempt is made to evaluate our present knowledge with regard to the analysis and design of reinforced concrete linear structural systems at ultimate load. The fundamental difference between the moment curvature concept and moment rotation concept is emphasized and discussed in detail. The authors have attempted to outline previous significant work, to underline a few basic principles, bearing in mind the difference between these two concepts, and to indicate the present extent of our knowledge of this subject with an appreciation of the assumptions and simplifications that are entailed. Readers are assumed to have some basic knowledge of some of the better known work on the subject, such as Sawyer’s or Baker’s work.
