Eight singly reinforced high strength concrete beams without web reinforcement were tested to investigate their behavior and to determine their ultimate shear capacities. In this study, the main variable was the ration of longitudinal reinforcement. Test results were compared with strength predicted by using ACI code, Zsutty's dquation and Bazant & Kim's equation. As the result, for the beams of low steel ratio, the margin of safety in ACI code may be disappeared. It was shown that Zsutty.s equation well predict the trend of the test data.
