The purpose of the study is to propose the design guidelines for flexural and shear strengths of high-strength reinforced concrete (so called as New RC) beams. It concluded that the flexural and shear design methods are similar to the seismic specification of the RC design provisions ACI 318-14. However, the specified coefficients of the New RC beams are different from the coefficients provided in the ACI 318-14, which are the factors for the rectangular stress block, flexural strength reduction, anti-buckling spacing of the compressive reinforcement, the probable flexural strength of beams, and the yield strength limit of lateral hoops.
