Abstract:
Many concrete structures have corners which must resist bending moments that cause tension at the inside. Various ways of placing corner reinforce- ment for this loading condition are discussed, and the results of comparative tests are described which show that certain new designs are superior to cur-rently standard designs in strength, toughness, and resistance to cracking.
