Unformatted text preview: u at the critical section under factored loads and determine the maximum spacing of #4 double leg stirrups that are needed for the critical section in shear. Section geometry is defined as b =18”, d =20.5 in. d’=2.5 in., h =24 in., A s =6#10, A s ’=2#9, the uniformly distributed dead load, including the self-weight of the beam is w DL =6 k/ft, and the uniformly distributed live load is w LL = 2 k/ft as shown. The yield strength of the shear reinforcement is f yt =60,000 psi. The yield strength of longitudinal reinforcements A s and A s ' is also 60,000 psi. 2)...
