Title: Torsion in Reinforced Concrete

Abstract:Over the last two decades a world-wide interest in the response of structural members subjected to torsion has developed, This is due principally to improvements both in the knowledge of the structural action of reinforced concrete members and in design procedures, particularly the strength design process. The objective of this "overview" paper is to summarize and present recent significant developments that have occurred in the area of torsion-al response of members and in the process of design of such members for torsional effects. The paper includes a short historical review but the emphasis is on recent research and design techniques.
