Abstract:
Addresses the detailing of stirrup reinforcement for shear. First, the function of the stirrups in members under high shear stresses is explained by means of truss models. Next, the results of an experimental program evaluating stirrup details used in current practices are presented. Based on this experimental program, recommendations for detailing of stirrups in members under high shear stresses are given.
