Title: Torsional Strength of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Beams-CEB Approach
Author(s): Burno Thurlimann
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 117-144
Keywords: beams (supports); bending; prestressed concrete; reinforced concrete; shear properties; structural design; torsion
Abstract:Besides a "Standard Method" derived from semi-empirical considerations for the new CEB model code proposes a "Refined Method" for the design of reinforced and prestressed conrete members subjected to torsion. It is compatible with the design method for bending and shear and combined cases of bending, shear and torsion.
