Input:
h = 120 mm
Clear cover = 25 mm fy = 420 MPa
d = 90 mm fc' = 45 MPa Normal weight concrete λ = 1
av = 85 mm fyt = 420 MPa
h1 = 120 mm h1 min. = 0.5d, Clause 11.8.2
bw = 1000 mm
Vu = 140 KN
Nuc = 32 KN Nuc min. = 0.2 Vu, Clause 11.8.3.4
�_𝒖 = �_𝒖 𝒂_(𝒗 ) + 𝑵_𝒖𝒄 ("h-d" ) =KN.m Clause 11.8.3
12.8

av/d= 0.94 < 1, Design Corbel using Clause 11.8.3, 11.8.4 as per Clause 11.8.1
� = 0.75 Clause 11.8.3.1
1- Calculation of shear-friction reinforcement Avf

Friction Surface Concrete placed against hardened concrete with surface intentionally roughened Clause 11.6.4.3
as specified in 11.6.9

## �_𝒗𝒇=�_𝒖/( 〖�𝒇〗 _�𝒕 𝝁)

�= 1 Clause 11.6.4.3 = 444 mm2 Clause 11.6.4.1

## 2- Calculation of Moment reinforcement Af

∴�_𝒇=�_𝒖/(� 𝒇_� "0.9d" )
�_𝒖 = ��_𝒏 = � �_𝒇 𝒇_� (d - 𝒂/𝟐 ) ≈ � �_𝒇 𝒇_� (0.9d) = 502 mm2 Clause 11.8.3.3

## 3- Calculation of Tensile force reinforcement An

�_𝒏=𝑵_𝒖𝒄/(� 𝒇_� )
= 102 mm2 Clause 11.8.3.4

## 5- Calculation of Shear horizontal tie reinforcement Ah

�_� = 0.5 (�_𝑺𝒄 〖 − �〗 _𝒏 ) mm2
= 251 Clause 11.8.4

## Use 2 Row T 10 Stirrups with 2 branches

Distribute Ah uniformly within (2/3)d adjacent to primary tension reinforcement, Clause 11.8.4 & Fig. R11.8.2
6- Check of Concrete bearing strength Pnb
