The new version of TM5-1300 has made significant revisions to the design provisions for shear reinforcing in blast resistant concrete structures. These changes allow more flexibility in the use of stirrups in lieu of lacing for limited deflection applications. This paper discusses these new provisions and compares them with previous requirements. A commentary on the significance of these changes is also included.
