by R.C. Reese,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1956, Vol. 82, Issue 6, Pg. 1-8

Document Type: Journal Paper


Paper shows how ultimate strength design is recognized for first time in Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-56); this is ultimate strength design, not limit design; need of controlling shallow sections by deflection calculations; ultimate strength procedures are easier to apply and give more realistic results than working stress formulas.
