Combination of Links and Central Bars as Alternative Shear Reinforcement

This paper examines the enhancement to the shear resistance aflbrded by links and the horizontal bars provided at the centre of the cross-section of a member. The rules for estimating the contributions of web reinforcement to the shear resistance have been studied with the help of tests on beams and measurement of stresses in the steel using strain gauges. The study also includes an examination of the rule for enhancement to the punching shear resistance of flat slabs, provided by the central mesh reinforcement. S.B. Desai
