An analytical model based on the space truss concept is proposed for predicting the torsional strength of steel-fibre-reinforced concrete beams. The method is validated by comparison with the test data available in published literature for the following cases: -beams provided only with fibre-reinforcement -prestressed fibre-concrete beams -fibre-concrete beams provided with longitudinal steel only -fibre-concrete beams provided with longitudinal steel as well as stirrups R.

The structural behaviour of multibay, open sandwich, reinforced concrete bridge decks is investigated, using the finite prism method. It is found that flat slab decks and inverted catenary slab decks exhibit satisfactory load distribution properties, but that their thin depth leads to unusually large in-plane shear distortion. Simpler methods of analysis are shown to be adequate for flat slabs, but not for inverted catenary slabs. C.C.K. Wong and Professor A.E. Vardy
