SESSION 3: 9th March 2017
Prof. Shaw started the third session with description of design for shear i. e. design under shear conditions. The emphasis was laid on the behavior of the beam under shear, the types of cracking that are basically witnessed under such conditions of shear. Diagonal cracking and dowel action was very effectively explained to the students with different examples. Topics such as design strength under shear condition, factors and conditions of limit state in shear, typical reinforcement of shear, concept of stirrups and maximum shear strength conditions were also explained.
