The 7.2 m simply supported beam is loaded with a uniform load Wu. It has an effective depth of 430 mm and a width of 250 mm. It has 2-legged 10 mm diameter stirrups spaced at 130 mm on centers all throughout the beam length. Determine the maximum Wu that the beam can carry based on the shear capacity of the beam. Use fc’ = 21 MPa and fy = 276 MPa.
