THE SHEAR STRENGTH OF SLENDER BEAMS WITH VERTICAL STIRRUPS, PART 1 AND 2

The detailed static loading of slender prismatic beams (with constant height and width) with vertical stirrups was considered. In cases of combined loading (bending, shear, normal forces, torsion), it was assumed that a certain amount of play is available in assuming the slope of the compression diagonal. In the adopted truss analogy, this means that the concrete compression diagonals must find support in the vertical stirrups. Another aspect of detailing relates to the buildup of tensile forces in the main reinforcement bars. In addition to good end anchoring, attention should be paid to the value of the bond stresses, with a view specifically to preventing anchorage cracking above the points of support. The line of reasoning followed can also be applied to the determination of the ultimate strength with respect to girders subject to torsion (or torsion and bending combined). (Author)
