Design of Shear Reinforcement for Slabs
The program allows determination of the required amount of shear reinforcement form by stirrups and hooks, 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 hooks the necessary reinforcement area is given by (Art. 6.2.3(4)):
ν, νmin are built-in the program - these values can also be input by the user depending on the selected National annex.
