Every load is converted into shear and bending stress. Every load produces compression and tension, compression produced by load in flexure is taken up by concrete, and tension is taken up by reinforcement. Shear force at cross section of the beam may be defined on unbalanced vertical force to the right (or) left of section. In a reinforced concrete beam, shear is taken up by stirrups, which are normally oriented transverse to longitudinal axis. The shape of typical stirrup is a box (or) a rectangle. As a part of experimental research, many researchers sound out that different shaped stirrups can be adopted in place of convention one of which some is spiral. However, in our project, we are preparing different orientation, which is provided, throughout the beam and comparing with conventional beam. We are comparing different parameters such as (1) Load vs deflection, (2) Ultimate load, (3) First crack, (4) Ultimate deflection, etc.
