Unformatted text preview: 8 ⋅ x1 y1 (0.95 f yv ) (3.32) • Longitudinal bars
o Longitudinal bars resist the longitudinal component of the diagonal tension forces
○ Recall Fig. 3.4-2, Considering a length sv of the beam, the torsional longitudinal
reinforcement should be such that the total quantity is equal to
the same volume as the steel in the links: As sv = Asv
2 The longitudinal bars and the links should fail simultaneously.
This is achieved by making the steel volume multiplied by the
characteristic strength t...
