126.96.36.199 Check overall depth of corbel
Conservatively, the maximum shear in the corbel should not exceed V . The depth of the corbel could be reduced by putting F < VRd2 but this would give an increased tie force and consequent detailing problems. The value of rRd in the expression for V (EC2 Eqn 4.18(1)) may be modified by the factor /3 defined in EC2 Clause 188.8.131.52(9).
By inspection /3 will be a minimum when x = ac in EC2 Eqn 4.17. Hence VR will also be a minimum.

pt is assumed to be 0.006 (4T16)
No provision has been made to limit horizontal forces at the support; therefore 184.108.40.206.2(4) a minimum horizontal force (HJ acting at the bearing area should be assumed. This is given by

Now 0.4hc < ac, therefore a simple strut and tie model may be assumed, as 18.104.22.168.2(1) shown in Figure 8.2.

The determination of x will be an iterative procedure. Choose x such that e = 0.002 and f, = 400 N/mm2
