Keywords: beams (supports); bending moments; bridges (structures); cracking (fracturing); diagonal tension; reinforced concrete; research; shear properties; strength; structural design; ultimate strength method; web reinforcement
On the basis of the author's research carried on since 1957, he defines strength limits of reinforced concrete beams, and strength in inclined cracking in particular. It appears that inclined cracking due to shear does not terminate the work of the beam.
