Shear and Diagonal Tension

Types of Shear Failure

Diagonal Tension Failure Shear-Compression Failure
-usually occur when the shear span is greater than 3d or 4d. -occurs when the shear span is from d to 2.5d.
Splitting or True Shear Failure
-occurs when the shear span is less than the effective depth d.

According to Section of the Code, shear reinforcement may consist of:
a) stirrups perpendicular to axis of member, and
b) b) welded wire fabric with wires located perpendicular to axis of member.

For nonprestressed members, shear reinforcement may also consist of:

a) stirrups inaking an angle of 45° or more with longitudinal tension reinforcement,
b) longitudinal reinforcement with bent portion making an angle of 30° or more with
the longitudinal tension reinforcement,
c) combinations of stirrups and bentlongitudinal reinforcement, and
d) spirals.

other bars or wires used as shear reinforcement shall extend
to a distance d from extreme compression fiber and shall be
anchored at both ends to develop the design yield strength

Spacing Limits Of Shear Reinforcement, s
According to Section of the Code, the spacings of shear reinforcement placed perpendicular
to axis of members shall not exceed d/2 in nonprestressed members and (3/4)h in prestressed
members, nor 600 mm. Inclined stirrups and bent longitudinal reinforcement shall be so spaced that

According to Section of the Code, a minimum area of

(b) Concrete joist construction defined by Sec. 5.8.11
(c) Beams with total depth not greater than 250 mm,
2-1/2 times thickness of flange, or 1/2 the width of web,
whichever is greatest.
Critical Section For Beam Shear

According to section of NSCP, the maximum factored shear force V,. at supports
may be computed in accordance with the following conditions provided that:
(a) the support reaction, in direction of the applied shear, introduces
compression into the end regions of member, and
(b) no concentrated load occurs between the face of the support and the
location of the critical section.
1. For non-prestessed members, sections located less than a distance d from face of support may be
designed for the same shear Vu as that computed at a distance d.
2. For prestressed member, sections located less than a distance h/2 from face of support may be designed for
the same shear V, as that computed at a distance h/2.
1. Calculate the factored shear Can either be in the critical section
force Vu Or within any point in the beam

Use the appropriate formula for Vc.

2. Calculate the shear strength Typical formula is
provided by the concrete (Vc).
Vc = 0.17λ(√f’c)bwd

If Vu > ΦVc, stirrups are necessary, proceed to Step 5. Avmin = 0.062(√f’c)bwS/fyt

3. Check whether stirrups are
necessary or not. If Vu < ΦVc but Vu > Φ(0.5Vc), use minimum area of stirrups > 0.35bwS/fyt
If Vu > ΦVc, beam section is capable to carry the factored shear

4. Calculate the shear strength

Vn = Vs + Vc
provided by the stirrups. If Vs < 0.66√f’c ,proceed to Step 5
Otherwise, adjust the size of the beam

5. Determine the required spacing S = Avfytd/Vs

of the stirrups. Check with the required maximum spacing
If Vs < 0.66√f’c , Smax = d/2 or 600 mm (get smaller)
If Vs > 0.66√f’c , Smax = d/4 or 300 mm (get smaller)
6. Draw the shear reinforcement
details for the beam
Sample Beam Reinforcement Details
Problem. A rectangular beam has the following properties
b = 320 mm Stirrup diameter = 10 mm
d = 570 mm fyt = 275 MPa
f'c = 24 MPa

Determine the following:

a. Required spacing of stirrups when the required shear strength is 90 kN.
b. Required spacing of stirrups when the required shear strength is 130 kN.
