1,500 pieces of

A simply supported beam without

shear reinforcement under four-point bending is considered to validate the proposed theoretical method (Walraven, 1978).

Longitudinal bottom reinforcement [FORMULA NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] mm, top reinforcement [FORMULA NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] mm and

shear reinforcement [FORMULA NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] mm.

For flexural and

shear reinforcement, deformed and plain rebars of diameter 10 and 6 mm were used, respectively.

Deformed Steel Fibers as Minimum

Shear Reinforcement in Deep, Prestressed Concrete Hollow-Core Slabs.

So, a minimum amount of

shear reinforcement is required

The mild steel flexural reinforcements used were 2#13 bars 2#10 hanger bars and

shear reinforcement included #10 U-stirrups.

An artificial network model was developed to measure the ultimate shear strength of steel fibrous reinforced concrete corbels (SFRC) without

shear reinforcement (Kumar, Barai 2010).

The concrete does have a higher initial unit cost than conventional concrete, but it can be optimized for applications (such as the reduction of

shear reinforcement in a beam), eliminating some of the costs associated with conventional concrete applications.

The formwork stays in place after the concrete has cured and acts as axial and

shear reinforcement, as well as serving to confine the concrete and prevent against environmental effects, such as corrosion and freeze- thaw cycles.

the same principles as for the strength of diagonal section for RC beam without

shear reinforcement are applied.

Beams without

shear reinforcement develop a shear crack pattern after the first few cycles; deformation increases only slightly.
