Unformatted text preview: C. Design of Beams for Shear 1. Shear capacity of concrete and stirrups 2. Stirrup design and spacing arrangements + Sketch 3. Shear capacity check with a given section 4. Location of critical section 5. Rough versus precise estimations of concrete shear strength 6. Shear crack patterns 7. Failure mode of shear versus that of flexure D. General Design Issues 1. Design principles and objectives 2. Integrated design procedures (flexure + shear + serviceability checks) 3. Loading case considerations (worst scenario) 4. Design assumptions 5. Redesign solutions 6. Construction issues (monolithic versus pre-cast; T-beams versus rectangular beams; minimum and maximum spacing of rebars) 7. Development length 8. Effects of environmental loads (snow, wind, earthquake)...
