Abstract: It is well known that the shear strength of deep reinforced concrete beams in higher than that of slender beams. Even without shear reinforcement, directly loaded deep beams exhibit reserve strength in shear above the shear force causing the diagonal tension cracks whereas the formation of diagonal tension cracks almost immediately leads to shear failure in slender reinforced concrete beams with no shear reinforcement.
