Nonlinear analysis of longitudinally reinforced RC beams with and without transverse reinforcement is attempted in this study. Simply supported beams of effective span 0.9 m, 1.2 m, 1.5 m & 1.8 m were analyzed, using ANSYS software. Load deflection behavior and ultimate load of the beams were obtained based on analytical results. Parametric study was attempted by varying shear span to effective depth ratio 2.4, 3.2, 4 & 4.8.
