Synopsis. Transverse Reinforcement in Composite Beams for Buildings by R. Paul Johnson

In 1969, a study was made of the results of tests on eighty steel-concrete composite beams in which longitudinal shear stress was high, and a new design method for transverse reinforcement in the slab was deduced. This gave a more uniform margin of safety than the method of CP 117 Part 1: 1965, and showed that the amount of reinforcement could be reduced by about 35 per cent.
