Experiments in Plain and Reinforced Concrete in Torsion Conclusion of Discussion on the Paper by Dr. W. T. Marshall and Mr. N. R. Tembe

This seems to confirm the authors’ views that the failure of concrete in torsion is essentially due to its failure in tension and therefore any reinforcement which tends to strengthen these tensile planes such as stirrups or spirals, would be the only effective reinforcement in developing torsional rigidity of the concrete section.
