It is now over twenty-five years since the Institution discussed a paper dealing with technical education, the last occasion being in 1931 when my distinguished predecessor, Mr. F. E. Drury presented a paper on the subject. Mr. Drury included some further references to the education and training of structural engineers in his Presidential Address in 1945.
The recommendations of British and other design codes on shear in reinforced concrete beams are examined and suggestions are made concerning the basis of an ultimate load approach. Some recent research and theories are discussed. Experimental results obtained by one of the authors are used, together with other published test results to develop equations for the moment of resistance of beams with or without web reinforcement. The physical significance of these equations is discussed and further research problems are outlined in relation to design requirements.
