An outline is given of the activities of CUR Committee A15, "torsion", which include (1) literature research on theories concerning the behavior of torsionally loaded plain concrete and reinforced concrete beams and on test results; (2) a series of tests planned by the committee and performed by the TNO Institute for building materials and building structures; (3) an evaluation of two methods of analysis using the results of tests published in the literature and of recent series of tests carried out in the Stevin Laboratory (Delft University of Technology) and by the TNO Institute; and (4) a proposal for a code of practice on torsion to be included in the VB 1972 standards, part E. Practical recommendations are made with respect to the design of beams subject to torsional loading. /TRRL/
