Appears on pages(s): 353-396
Presents a review of scientific knowledge, engineering practice, and construction experiences regarding shear and diagonal tension in reinforced concrete beams, frames, slabs, and footings. Recommendations for new design procedures are substantiated by extensive test data. Chapters 1 through 4 deal with background and general principles. Chapters 5 through 7 present the development of new design methods for reinforced concrete members without and with web reinforcement, and for members without and with axial load acting in combination with bending and shear. Chapter 8 deals with slabs and footings including the effect of holes and transfer of moments from columns to slabs.
