RECOMMENDATIONS ON SHEAR AND TORSION: A COMPARISON OF ACI AND CEB APPROACHES

A comparison of ACI and CEB approaches to shear and torsion recommendations is presented. The author discusses the application of safety factors; shear resistance of members without shear reinforcement; reinforced concrete members with shear reinforcement; the effect of shear cracking on forces in the main reinforcement; shear resistance of concrete in short shear spans; presented concrete; equilibrium and compatibility torsion; designing reinforcement for torsion; and designing for combined loadings. /Author/
