Title: Ultimate Strength in Combined Bending and Torsion of Concrete Beams Containing both Longitudinal and Transverse Reinforcement

Appears on pages(s): 1509-1522
Abstract:Rectangular concrete beams were tested to destruction under combined bending and torsional loads. The beams contained both longitudinal and transverse reinforcement, and concrete strength, amount and spacing of reinforcement, and moment-torque ratios were varied. A theoretical model was developed from the observed failure mechanisms and was used to check the results of these tests and also the results of other tests reported in the-literature.
