Abstract

The authors have presented the results of deep beams subjected to shear to evaluate the benefit of distributing stirrups across the web. By testing three full-scale deep beams using a very interesting procedure and adopting the number of stirrup legs distributed across the web and the amount of web reinforcement as the primary experimental variables, the authors were able to obtain a total of six tests. Based on these tests, the authors have concluded that the addition of closely spaced stirrups did not significantly improve the shear capacity or serviceability performance of deep beams with a shear span-depth ratio (a/d) of 1.84 or 1.85. Despite the quality of their research, some additional issues should be discussed to clarify some topics and enhance the entire comprehension of this interesting paper.
