• Closed links (closed stirrups)
o From Eq. (3.30), the total torsional resistance is expressed as T= Asv
x1 y1 (0.95 f yv )⋅ 0.8
sv (3.31) where x1 is smaller dimension of the link, y1 is larger dimension
of the link, Asv is sectional area of the two legs of a link, and sv
is stirrup spacing.
The efficiency factor of 0.8 is included to allow for errors in
assumptions made about the truss behaviour.
143 o Hence a two-leg closed link must be provided such that Asv
