The Modified Compression Field Theory was developed at the University of Toronto over two decades ago using the results from 30 reinforced concrete panel tests. Can a theory that has, as its experimental basis, a mere 30 tests truly allow us to predict the behaviour of complex reinforced concrete structures? Over the years a number of experiments have been conducted that have served to validate the theory and have proved its robustness in terms of capturing the effects of numerous variables. This presentation will provide an overview of the most recent experimental and analytical work that has been undertaken at the University of Toronto to validate and apply the model. The results of these experiments not only show excellent agreement with the model but also offer insights into areas of reinforced concrete structural performance that have not been explored previously.
