IN ORDER TO PROVIDE SOME DIRECT EVIDENCE ON THE AMOUNT OF WEB REINFORCEMENT REQUIRED FOR THE ATTAINMENT OF FLEXURAL CAPACITY, ELEVEN BEAMS WITH VARYING SPANS AND WEB REINFORCEMENT WERE TESTED. THE RESULTS ARE COMPARED WITH THEORETICAL PREDICTIONS AND WITH BRITISH AND AMERICAN CODES OF PRACTICES. /RRL(A)/
