Abstract : From the review of eleven references concerning reinforced concrete deep beams, it was possible to summarize: (1) the modes of failure of deep beams, (2) the static ultimate strength design equations for flexure and shear, and (3) the flexure and shear design equations for deep beams subjected to dynamic loading. In addition, a computer program was written to develop the moment-curvature curve for a reinforced concrete beam section with tensile reinforcement in a single layer. A limited experimental investigation was conducted for two reinforced concrete deep beams having span-to-depth ratios of 1.67 and subjected to a single, concentrated dynamic load at midspan. The results served to point out the areas where additional research is required to develop a more complete understanding of the behavior of reinforced concrete deep beams. Recommendations are made as to needs for additional study. (Author)
