Keywords: beams (supports); bending; building codes; loads (forces); reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; research; shear properties; shear strength; structural design
The proposals given in ACI 318-71 and SAA CA2-72 (Australian Code for Concrete Structures) for the calculation of shear force carried by concrete, Vc, in beams subjected in the light of test results as well as in relation to the results given by some of the recent theories.
