Formatted abstract

This thesis involved a detailed examination of four reinforced concrete beams with equal dimensions subject to torsion. All beams consisted of four longitudinal corner bars, three of which contained cogs (90° lap of transverse reinforcement) and the other comprising of hooks (135° lap of transverse reinforcement). Two of the beams having cogs (one of which was precracked) were strengthened by the adhesion of carbon fibre reinforced plastic sheets on to the concrete surface.  

It was shown that the hooks and cogs provided similar ultimate torsional capacity and that the effect of CFRP strengthening was considerable.
