Design Example
Shear and Torsion

Objective: To examine the adequacy of given cross section based on shear and torsion capacities.

Problem: At a section of a beam, the internal forces are Vu = 45 kips, Mu = 300 kips-ft, and Tu =
120 kips-ft. The material strengths are fc = 4 ksi and fy = 60 ksi. Assume that the
distance from beam faces to the center of stirrups is 2 in and d is 21 in.

Task: Answer or accomplish the following questions and tasks based on given assumption.

Will this given cross section (16 in wide and 24 in deep) be adequate for shear and
torsion requirements? If not, what width is required?
Assume that the depth is to be held at 24 in.
Select the required torsion, shear, and bending reinforcement for the minimum
required width (to nearest inch).
Summarize reinforcement on a sketch of the cross section.

However, (Tu )actual = 120 kips-ft = 1440 103 lbs-in

Acp is the area enclosed by outside perimeter of concrete cross section, in2, and ph is the
perimeter of centerline of outermost closed transverse torsional reinforcement, in.

Assuming f yv = f yl ( f yv : yield strength of stirrups/ f yl : yield strength of longitudinal steels)
and substituting all known numbers ( Acp = 17 24 = 408 in2, ph = 2 (17 4 + 24 4 ) = 66 in)
provides Al ,min < 0, therefore (11-24) is disregarded.

5. Summary
Use
4 #10 @ the bottom (3.47 in2 for M, 1.61 in2 for T)
2 #6 @ intermediate level (1.50 in2 for T)
3 #6 @ the top (1.79 in2 for T, 0.46 in2 excess)
We have an excess of steel. In the worse case, we have a moment Mu without Tu. The 5.08in2
of steel at the bottom can all be considered for flexural tensile reinforcement purpose. In that
case,
5.08

which is still O.K.

Comments on the final design:
1. Different design configurations are possible, in general. Various combinations of
different sizes of steel bars can achieve same reinforcement ratio. However, relevant
designs are made typically considering the convenience of construction and the spacing
between any two steel bars (the concrete between two steel bars will crash undesirably if
the spacing between them is not enough).
2. Considering the constructability, four corner positions are usually required to deploy
longitudinal bars to fix stirrups.
3. It is preferable to use same size of steel bars on each cross section for economic reason
unless it is not possible to achieve the requirement of reinforcement.
