## Other designdetailing checks

Minimum area of reinforcement

Aamin = 0.26 (fctm / fyk) btd > 0.0013 btd <9.2.1.1>

§ The absolute maximum for vRdmax (and therefore the maximum value of vEd) would be 5.28 MPa when cot 0 would equal 1.0 and the variable strut angle would be at a maximum of 45°. ** For determination of VRdmax see Section 4.3.10.

ft As maximum spacing of links is 294 mm, changing spacing of links would appear to be of limited benefit.

where bt = width of tension zone

Aamin = 0.26 x 0.30 x 300666 x 300 x 392 / 500 = 366 mm2 Curtailment main bars Bottom: curtail

= 480 mm say 450 mm from A 70% main bars 0.30/ - ^ = 1800 - 1.125 x 392

= 1359 mm say 1350 from A

Top: curtail
