A method of designing reinforced concrete sections subjected to membrane stresses has been presented. The method proposes separate design for horizontal, vertical and shear
stresses which are in excess of the concretess carrying capability. The method is simple and is suitable for use in the everyday design work of such structural elements.
The summary provided by the authors of various recommendations and 13 'rule of thumb' equations, supported by a most impracticable example, is of doubtful value to the designer. The proposed method for the solution of the problem is given in a complicated form.
A braced core may be defined as a particular form of bracing a steel skeleton in which the members, designed specifically for carrying the forces and moments due to lateral loads, are confined to within the core area of the building. A study is made in this paper of the behaviour of such a braced core subjected to torsional loads.
