This research is devoted to investigate the experimental and theoretical behavior of deep beams under monotonic two points loading. An experimental program examining six RC deep beams is carried out. The investigated parameters include shear span to depth ratio varying from 1.0 to 0.276. A comparative study is conducted in this paper by using finite element software ANSYS. The experimental and numerical results show that concrete strength and shear span to depth ratio are the two most important parameters in controlling the behavior of RC deep beams. Comparison of experimental results was made with corresponding predicted values using the Strut and Tie procedure presented ACI 318M-11Code and with other procedures mentioned in the literature. It was found that the Strut and Tie procedure presented in ACI 318M-11Code give conservative results as compared with the experimental tested results. The results showed reliability of analysis in predicting deep beams behavior in terms of failure load, failure mode as well as crack propagation.
