Transverse Shear in RC Circular Voided Slabs

Results are presented of tests on 10 transverse strips of reinforced concrete voided slabs subjected to transverse shear. The need for web reinforcement to control diagonal cracks is demonstrated. The failure loads and modes of the strips are compared with those predicted by a proposed theory and reasonable agreement obtained. In addition, reasonable agreement is obtained between the theory and independent test data. Finally design and assessment procedures are suggested. Professor L.A. Clark and P. Thorogood
