Shear Reinforcement

Glossary Term

The shear reinforcement is usually entered in the case of member-shaped concrete components, so that they can absorb shear and torsional forces.

For this purpose, the longitudinal reinforcement members must be enclosed by stirrups.

Generally, the shear reinforcement is arranged perpendicular to the longitudinal reinforcement in order to absorb tensile forces in the shear design according to the truss analogy. Compressive forces are transferred by concrete struts.

In the structural components mainly subjected to compression, the shear reinforcement is also arranged to prevent the longitudinal rebars from buckling.
