Reports recent work of the subcommittee on shear of the European Concrete Committee. The functions of stirrup rein-forcement, bent-up bars, transverse ties, and some new types of transverse reinforcement are examined. Design methods for transverse reinforcement provided to prevent splitting are suggested. A broad program of future tests is suggested, aimed toward improved concepts and methods of design for shear and bond, with particular reference to members with high strength longitudinal reinforcement.
