Abstract : In a previous investigation it was shown that the ACI Code method underestimates the ultimate capacity of symmetrically reinforced T-beams subjected to combined torsion, bending, and shear by approximately 19% and a more accurate ultimate strength method was presented. This investigation is an extension of the research reported previously and deals with the cracking and ultimate capacities of symmetrically and unsymmetrically reinforced T-beams.
