Reinforcement for Shear and Flexure

Determination of the shear capacity of a beam is discussed in Art. 9.47. Minimum shear reinforcement is required in all beams with total depth greater than 10 in, or 21⁄2 times flange (slab) thickness, or half the web thickness, except where the fac tored shear force Vu is less than half the design shear strength Vc of the concrete alone. Torsion should be combined with shear when the factored loads cause a
