Curtailment of Main Reinforcing Steel and its Effects on Shear

The interaction of shear and bond effects in the light of the reduced requirements of shear reinforcement permitted by the draft Unified Code is dealt with in this paper. The two principal topics are the effects of curtailment of main steel on resistance to shear cracking, and the dependence of the distribution of the main steel force after shear cracking on the amount of shear reinforcement provided.
