Design for biaxial loading or circular sections

Shear design of reinforced-concrete components –

Both on a national and international scale, the shear design of reinforced-concrete components with shear reinforcement currently relies on planar truss models. This analysis has to verify sufficient bearing capacities of diagonal ties and inclined struts.

For instance, biaxial shear loads act on façade beams if vertical dead or live loads occur simultaneously with wind loads. These must be treated in the same way as inclined bending actions, i.e. as a resultant, inclined shear load. The stirrups are subject to higher stresses while the contribution of a concrete or cross-sectional component to...
