Abstract

Reinforced concrete beams are designed to resist the shear forces resulting from the various combinations of ultimate loads once the primary longitudinal bending reinforcement has been determined. As discussed in this chapter, shear resistance is usually provided by the addition of shear links wherever the nominal shear capacity of the concrete itself proves inadequate.
