The beam is failing even if i increase the depth of the beam in Mat foundation, i need your help what is the way forward, the results displayed is
"Beam is failing in shear please increase maximum secondary reinforcement"
iam using Staad Advanced Foundation V9 Update 6.1
Have you tried increasing the secondary reinforcement sizes as suggested by the program? Try a maximum stirrup size of 22 and see if that helps.
Ok i will do that and give you feedback, but practically it may be hard to bent 32mm bar to be used as stirrup
I tried to increase but still the beam is failing,and i need clarification in beam designer the units of bar diameter listed is in which unit(diameter of bar in mm?)
I noticed another thing when i view beam forces in my Mat foundation,Axial load is 0,shear forces are 0,Torsion 0,Mom Y and Z are zero,which i dont think is correct results
