Ultimate Strength of Concrete Sections in Bending and Torsion by Extension of Standard Theory

INTRODUCTION IT has been generally considered that, as the standard theory does not give the ultimate load at which a reinforced concrete beam fails, it must be discarded. In consequence of this, a number of attempts have been made in recent years to predict the ultimate strength of R.C. beams by different methods, notably by Dr. Glanville (*), Professor Saliger, and C.S. Whitney. The theories advanced by these writers are purely empirical and do not give any idea of the stresses at loads other than the ultimate. This paper is intended to show how the standard theory, which is useful in giving an idea of the stresses at working loads, can alsoobe extended to predict the ultimate loads. K.L. Rao
