4 To find the least amount of shear reinforcement, for low and intermediate shear stresses, the upper limits given in 1 above for cot 0 will normally govern the design. For higher shear stresses, the largest value of cot 0 corresponding to the lowest amount of shear reinforcement may be found by equating the design shear force Vsd to V d2. The amount of shear reinforcement is then found by equating the design shear force Vsd to V d3. The value of cot 0 may alternately be selected to optimise...
