Title: Philosophy for Design of Concrete Structures in Torsion
Author(s): Henry J. Cowan
Publication: Symposium Paper
Appears on pages(s): 461-468
Some of the early research on torsion in concrete is reviewed. The reasons for the arrangement and amount of reinforcement are examined. Interaction with bending is discussed, and the importance of simple design rules is stressed, since torsion is generally a secondary effect of bending in concrete structures.
