Spacing Limits for shear reinforcement.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would appreciate your comment on ACI Code 318R-95 Sec11.5.4 - regarding
"Spacing of shear reinforcement" which states :
" Spacing of shear reinforcement placed perpendicular to axis of member
shall not exceed d/2 in nonprestressed members and (3/4)h in prestressed
members, nor 24in. "

As I am designing one way ribbed slabs with h=26cm( 10" ) and according to
the above section I have to place stirrups at d/2 =11cm.....
Thanks for your comments.
