Consideration of transverse reinforcement when calculating the shear resistance in beams

The “Shear resistance calculation” option has been implemented in order to optimise the check and design of the transverse reinforcement of beams. It can be accessed from the “General data” panel (General data > Bars > By position > Beam options > Design / Code checks). 

If this option is activated, the calculation of the shear resistance in beams will always be carried out considering the contribution of the transverse reinforcement and the additional provisions according to the criteria of the code for this type of reinforcement will be taken into account. Otherwise, a check is first made as to whether the element resists the shear resistance without considering the transverse reinforcement.
