The use of high tensile steel as normal reinforcement in concrete members necessitates the study of the behaviour of such members under the action of static, fatigue and sustained loading. The present state of knowledge of the effects of the type of steel and the type of loading on the serviceability and strength of concrete members has been reviewed. From a comparison of structures reinforced with ordinary and high tensile steels, it has been indicated that by increasing the permissible steel stresses great savings can be obtained, but the deflection and cracking become more pronounced, especially when the effects of long-term loading are considered. Limited information has been reported on the effect of the static cyoles, subsequent to the first cycle, on these two limit states. In view of the above, the applicability of the limit state design, and the study of the recommendations of codes of practice of several countries, it was felt that an experimental investigation was required to study the behaviour, in cracking and deflection, of concrete members reinforced with hiEýi tensile steel and subjected to static, fatigue and sustained loading. A programme of an experimental investigation was designed to study the behaviour of reinforced concrete beams.
