|Abstract:||The effects of introducing a transverse opening on the behaviour and strength of reinforced concrete beams under predominant shear are presented and discussed in this paper. On the basis of observed structural response, some guidelines are suggested to classify the opening as "large" or "small". For small openings, two types of diagonal tension failure have been identified, and a method of design using the current codes of practice is proposed. The method is illustrated by a numerical example. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.|
