Torsional Properties of Prestressed Concrete

THE introductory summary of the work of previous investigators shows that an increase in the torsional strength of concrete could best be gained by reinforcing the beam with a complicated network of spirals and longitudinal bars. Such systems are uneconomical because of their demands upon workmanship and materials. The paucity of information available on the design of concrete sections in torsion was criticised by members of the Tnstitution of Civil Engineers in 1951. Robert Humphreys
