Authors' introduction: When writing a paper it is important to have a clear attitude as to whom one is writing for who will use it and, hopefully, learn from it.
The authors have provided some interesting data on a serviceability failure of deep beams which should prove invaluable to research workers and Code Committees concerned with this difficult problem. It would, however, increase the value ofthe paper if rather fuller details of the reinforcement of the beams could be provided so that shortcomings in the design could be properly assessed.

I read the paper with interest and would like to make some comments from my experience in the construction and strengthening of these structures.
