The Design of Reinforced Concrete Deep Beams in Current Practice

The design of remforced concrete deep beams is not yet covered by the new British Code CP110:1972. The major design methods currently available are reviewed in this paper, namely, those proposed by ( l ) the European Concrete Committee in 1970; ( 2 ) the American Concrete Institute in 1971; and (3) the Portland Cement Association in its long standing document ST66 issued in 1946. The more recent proposals by the authors and their co-workers are also explained; unlike the others, the authors' proposals cover also deep beams with web openings. F.K. Kong, P.J. Robins and G.R. Sharp
