The Influence of Shear on the Moment of Resistance of Reinforced Concrete Beams Written Discussion on the Paper by K. Subbiah and R. B. L. Smith, B.Sc.Tech., A.M.I.Struct.E

Mr. R. TAYLOR :- THE Authors are to be congratulated on their presentation of a new approach to the problem of the effects of shear on the ultimate strength of reinforced concrete beams. The original conception of Laupa, Siess, and Newmark of expressing on a moment basis the strength of beams loaded in such a way as to give a ‘shear-compression’ type of failure has been extended by the authors to cover all types of failure.
