Design of Shear Reinforcement for Slabs
The program allows determination of the required amount of shear reinforcement form by stirrups and bends, respectively.
First, the program computes the ultimate shear strength in a given section - the shear force transmitted by concrete VRd,c (Art. 6.2.2(1)) and the maximum allowable shear force VRd,max (Art. 6.2.3(3)).
As for stirrups the necessary reinforcement area is given by (Art. 6.2.3(3)):
As for bends the necessary reinforcement area is given by (Art. 6.2.3(4)):
Standard values of coefficients ν, νmin are built-in the program - these values can also be input by the user depending on the selected National annex.
