Presents a rational method for the proportioning of arch ribs, rectangular columns under eccentric load, and beams which recognizes the plasticity of the concrete and its effect on the stress-strain relationship. Formulas are given which predict the ultimate strength of members based on the cylinder strength of the concrete and yield strength of the steel independent of the ratio of their moduli of elasticity.
