TWO reinforced concrete deep beams with span depth ratios of 1.8 and 0.9 were designed using nonelastic stress fields and direct design approach. An inplane elasto-plastic nonlinear finite element program was used to generate the stress fields. The orthogonal reinforcement was designed using Nielsel-Clark design equations. The beams were tested both numerically using a nonlinear finite element program and experimentally using reinforced concrete beams 100 mm thick and a clear span of 900 mm to check their behaviour at both serviceability and ultimate limit state loads.
