Two-way Shear Through Wide Beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Quick question: if I want to check punching shear through a wide beam with
stirrups, can I count on the stirrup reinforcing to fully contribute to the
punching shear strength Vn=Vc+Vs ? Or should I only consider one-half of Vs,
or zero of Vs ? I am guessing use one-half of Vs is reasonable.
