Reinforced Concrete Beams Subjected to a Sustained Torque

The test results of twelve reinforced concrete beams subjected to sustained torsional moments for periods of up to two years are reported. The average rotation after one year was over five times the rotation due to the initial application of the load. The effect on the long term torsional rotation of different intensities of sustained torque and of different link spacing is discussed. C.D. Goode
