Title: Torsion in Structural Concrete- A Perspective
Author(s): Gordon P. Fisher
Publication: Symposium Paper
Appears on pages(s): 1-6
One of the most arresting aspects of torsion in structural concrete is the rapid growth of research over the past decade. Long neglected compared with other areas of concrete technology, torsion has been assigned an increasingly greater importance by engineers, and it is not at all surprising that the American Concrete Institute has been part of this recent movement. It was in 1958 that ACI Committee 438, Torsion, was authorized by the Institute.
