Full Length Research Paper
The present study reviews the design specifications of openings in the web for simply supported reinforced concrete (RC) beams and rectangular concrete beams conducted by previous researchers. A number of papers have been found to handle the reinforced concrete beams containing a series or isolated web openings. The effects of the size and location of the openings on the behavior of such beams are examined and the strengths of these openings are investigated as well. This paper, therefore, discusses and describes the previous researches which are related to the openings in the web of reinforced concrete (RC) beams.
Key words: Web opening, design procedure, reinforced concrete beams.
