Stirrups

Stirrups are made of rectangular metal components wrapped around the top and bottom strips of beams or columns (rectangular or round in shape). The major reinforcing bars of a reinforced concrete structure is protected by a stirrup, which is a complete loop of reinforcing steel. Based on the manufacturer and shape of the portions, it can be customized in various shapes and sizes. 

Purpose of Stirrups:

     ▶     Stirrups are necessary to prevent buckling of columns and beams as well as to aid in lateral resistance.

     ▶     This is designed to mitigate shear failure, which is generally diagonal in the case of beam fractures.

     ▶     They are utilized to effectively manage shear capacity.

     ▶     Stirrup spacing along the beam is crucial, but it should typically be indicated by the expert.

     ▶     It helps to keep everything moving in the same way.

     ▶     Stirrup assists to keep stability while also providing strength to the structure at vital spots where it is likely to                  be vulnerable over time.
