Why in  a beam a minimum value for shear reinforcement is suggested in Code ?

  • Flexural member should be capable of developing its full moment capacity rather than having its strength limited by premature shear failure.
  • Addition of web reinforcement enhances the shear strength considerably and induce ductile failure mechanism

Test performed at Structural Engineering laboratory at Reykjavik University (www.ru.is/sel).
The shear force displayed is the point load (the force from the jack divided by two).
