Design of Shear reinforcement in a beam
Relationship between Structural and A reinforced cement concrete beam 300mm wide and 500mm effective depth is subjected to a

Architectural Design shear force of 40KN at the ends. The beam is provided with 6 bars of 20mm diameter of which 3

Various types of RCC Slabs | Design of bars are cranked at 45 degrees. Design the shear reinforcement for M20 grade concrete.

RCC Structures
Here are the steps for the design of Shear Reinforcement in a beam:
Reinforced Circular Water Tank | Design
of RCC Structures Width of the beam = b = 300mm

Shear force = Vu = 40KN
| FIFA World Cup 2010
Solved numericals for Singly reinforced Effective depth = d = 500mm
Sections | Design Method 1
Area of steel, Ast = 3 x 3.14/4 x 20 x 20 = 942.47 mm2
Understanding Stresses and Modular
ratio | RCC Structures Step one
Factors causing damage to the building | Nominal shear stress
Failures in Buildings
Tv = Vu/bd
Dining lighting | The Art of Illumination
Hollow Cement Block Partitions Tv = 40 x 1000/(300 x 500) = 0.26N/mm2

1 Bridge Design Percentage of steel

2 Steel Design Percent steel = Ast/bd x 100

Percent steel = (942.47 x 100)/ (300500)

Step three
Subscribe As per IS: 456: 2000

Tc = 0.48 + (0.56-0.48)/(0.75-0.5) (0.63 0.5)

Tc= 0.52 N/mm2 9/9/2016

Therefore, Tv < Tc
1 Civil Design
No shear reinforcement required.
2 House Construction Design
Step four
Provide minimum shear reinforcement;

As per IS : 456 : 2000

Asv/bsv = 0.4/(0.87 fy)

Assuming 6mm diameter, 2 legged stirrups

Asv = (2 x 3.14 x 6 x 6)/4 = 56.54 mm2

Sv = (0.87fy.Asv)/0.4b

Sv = (0.87 x 250 x 56.54)/(0.4300) = 102.47mm say 100mm

As per IS:456:2000,

Maximum spacing = 0.75d

= 0.75 x 500

= 375mm

Provide 6mm diameter, 2-legged stirrups@100mm c/c.

Maximum spacing = 0.75d

= 0.75 x 230 = 172mm

Provide 6mm diameter 2-legged stirrups @ 100mmc/c

i like the in which you explain..great

#2 by BenzuJK on February 23, 2011 - 10:28 am

Hello Yogendra,
I am glad my article was helpful

#3 by Abdul Muheed on September 10, 2012 - 4:51 am

Dear Madam,

I found your one of the beam detailing page, which is quite informative.

Ive an query regarding beam steel reinforcement detailing that, in the End of the beam do the making of
L shape in the rebar is essential in all the cases, specially in the ends of the Beam?

Please educate me if you have a time. I am an sit civil engineer working in the construction projects. It ll
be highly appreciable if u could answer.

hi experts, i have i query about my house in my house have a porch 15feet x 6 feet laying on four column
(250mm x 250 mm) porch beam ( 250mm wide x depth is 350mm along with slab ) beam have only four
10mm bar tie with 6mm @150mm is it possible to construct 6 feet high parapet brick wall above slabe any
suggetion please.

Hi! Could u plz guide me which one is better site engineer or structural engineer job. Considering future
scope. Reply urgently plzz.

#6 by BenzuJK on March 23, 2011 - 7:14 am

Site Engineer and Structural engineer both have good scope. But there is a lot of hard work you have to
do if you are a site engineer. Your whole and sole work is to monitor the activities on the site. Whereas if
you are a Structural Engineer, your work is limited to structural drawings accompanied by a couple of site
Structural Engineer makes more money than a Site Engineer. And of course, if you are looking at future
scope, then Structural Engineers have hell lot of scope everywhere in the world.

Yes you r perfectly correct. that is true.

however if you are planning to start your own company in the future as site engineer youll earn the
experience and connections better

Hi, It was very help full for designer, If you could provide me the design example of raft foundation for a
fourth story building.

#10 by Ramesh dahal on April 23, 2011 - 2:37 am

I would to thankx who provide it & i like it too much..but, it is necessary new idea & concept(to reduce like
the effect of earthquake) to design shear reinforcement

#11 by Felix on May 11, 2011 - 12:45 am

Indeed the site engineer has more work to do in the field but these are easy to do only more paper works like
daily time records, accomplishment report equipment utilization reports,etc. However being a structural
engineer requires specialty of engineering. In field, you will observe that the structural engineer has less
work to do. But in reality hidden from the outside world, it takes a lot of time of researches, studies,
calculations, analysis, comparison etc to hone the skills. Indeed structural engineers command higher salary.
I once worked as a site engineer in a hydro dam before becoming a structural engineer at present. I hope
this will enligthen

#12 by mahesh on January 25, 2012 - 7:59 am


Its mahesh here i completed BE in Civil engineering i would like to work in structural engineering field. Is this
qualification enough to work in same field or M.Tech is must..?
Is there any alternate way get into the Structural field?

#13 by rhon ammang on February 15, 2012 - 11:16 pm

thanks its really a big help

#15 by abhijit on May 4, 2012 - 3:59 am

hi can u give me information about bridge design in simpler manner..

#16 by BenzuJK on May 6, 2012 - 2:37 am

Hello Abhijit,
We havent yet covered the topics of bridge design | STeel structures. We will be doing that soon. We will
inform you whenever it is done.

Hi Teacher,
I am waiting the coming Topic

#18 by Ajay on August 27, 2012 - 4:51 am

i would like to ask 1 question.the question is illustrate typical details of a beam column junction at exterior

#19 by priya on October 3, 2012 - 5:25 am

why shear reinforcement is provided?
