A Space Truss Model for Fibre-Concrete Beams in Torsion

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.
