#### Design of Shear Reinforcement in a beam

The beam is failed by the diagonal tension in which the cracks start from support and extend upto a distance equal to effective depth and making an angle more or less than 45 degrees.

#### Here are the steps for the design of Shear Reinforcement in a beam:

#### Step one

Nominal shear stress

Tv = Vu/bd

Where, Vu = shear force due to design load

b = width of the beam

d = depth of the beam

#### Step two

Percentage of steel

Percent steel = Ast/bd x 100
