Unified Theory of Reinforced Concrete

Thomas T.C. Hsu
December 10, 1992

Reinforced concrete structures are subjected to a complex variety of stresses and strains. The four basic actions are bending, axial load, shear, and torsion. Presently, there is no single comprehensive theory for reinforced concrete structural behavior that addresses all of these basic actions and...
