Design of Corbels, 18:456-2000, Clause 28 deals with design of Concrete Corbels. The case of shear resistance of RC members, in which the loads are applied very near the supports, is diferent from that in which the loads are applied far away from the supports, The ratio of the distance of the load application from the support a, io the effective depth of the member’ supporting the'Toad d is called ae/d ratio ar shear span f depth ratio. . ~ \ Corbets or brackets arc! short cantilevers, whose afd ratio is less than 1.0, and the depth (Dy at the cad face oF WIESE members is not less than one-half of the depth Ds at the support. These corbels carry the load by strut action as shown in figure 2.1L. The reinforcement details arc shown th fig 2.2.
