Lecture 29 - Page 1 of 6 Lecture 29 – Shear in Beams (cont.) As a continuation of our discussion of shear in concrete beams, let’s look at an example of a concrete girder with point loads. Example GIVEN : The 20” x 34” concrete girder as shown below. Use the following: Concrete f’ c = 4000 PSI #3 – Grade 60 U-shaped stirrups REQUIRED : Determine the stirrup bar requirements. Assume only one spacing for the beam. 8’-0” 8’-0” 8’-0” 8’-0” 8’-0” 20” d = 32” h = 34” 40’-0” w u = 1.2 KLF #3 U-shaped stirrup bars Beam Cross-Section Conc. column 25 KIPS 25 KIPS 25 KIPS 25 KIPS
