The report deals with the shear strength of statically
indeterminate reinforced concrete beams without shear
reinforcement. Solutions for a number of beams with different load
and support conditions have been derived by means of the crack
sliding model developed by Jin- Ping Zhang.This model is based
upon the hypothesis that cracks can be transformed into yield
lines, which have lower sliding resistance than yield lines formed
in uncracked concrete.Proposals have been made on how the derived
standard solutions may be applied to more complicated cases, such
as continuous beams, beams with combined loading, prestressed
beams and beams with different reinforcement area at top and
bottom.
