Title: Distribution of Torsion and Bending Moments in Connected Beams and Joints
Author(s): M. A. Gouda
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 757-774
Abstract:Presents a method for determining torsion and bending moments in concrete beams and slabs connected monolithically. Solution of the problem is based on the elastic torsion theory where the effect of the torsional rigidity of beams and slabs is taken into account. Beams are assumed to be homogeneous with their ends rigidly fixed. Different cases investigated included: outer beam subjected to a cantilever moment, marginal beam, effect of bearn end rotation, and effect of beam deflection. Formulas and practical curves are given for a direct determination of the torsion in the beams and the moments in the slabs.
