Abstract:
while considerably sophisticated analytical tools, such as the finite element technique, have been recently used by researchers in the analysis of deformation of reinforced concrete flexural members, it may be said that simple and satisfactory procedures for quick calculations of deflections of reinforced concrete members under short-term loading, are not available. . .In this paper, it is attempted to critically review some of the associated problems and compare possible approaches to a practical deformational analysis.
