Various analytical methods were applied to the laboratory specimens for capacity prediction, including ACI 318 shear design methods, the Modified Compression Field Theory (MCFT) sectional analysis approach, strut-and-tie models, mechanical models, and non-linear finite element analysis.... of the strength factors for concrete struts in strut-and-tie models given in Appendix A of the 2002 ACI Building Code. A total of 12 reinforced concrete deep beam specimens with various shear span-to-depth ratios ranging from 0.82 to 1.57, anbsp;...
