Abstract: This paper presents the results of an investigation conducted on steel fibre reinforced concrete beams in pure torsion. The main parameters of the study were the volume fraction and aspect ratio of fibres. It was found that inclusion of fibres in concrete improved the ultimate torsional strength and imparted considerable ductility and toughness to the beams. The strength and toughness of beams were found to increase with increasing volume fraction and aspect ratio of fibres. A comparison of test results with torsion theories indicated that a satisfactory prediction of ultimate torque could be obtained by using plastic theory. © 1982.
