    Key-note paper.The paper deals with methods based on the theory of plasticity to be used in the design of reinforced concrete members of high strength concrete. Formulae for the bending capacity of beams subjected to pure bending are given. Methods for shear design of beams are described. Emphasis is put on the recently developed crack sliding model applicable to non-shear reinforced beams and lightly shear reinforced beams. The consequences of sliding in cracks on the strength of disk elements are also described. The methods described are compared with results of tests with high strength concrete elements. Good agreement has been found.Keywords: Plastic design methods, bending capacity, shear capacity, crack sliding, HSC beams, HSC disks.
