In shear design of an RC beam, other than the allowable shear strength of concrete (τ_{c}),
there is also an additional check suggested in IS 456-2000 with respect to the
maximum permissible shear stress (τ_{c max}). The check for τ_{c max }max is required to
take care of

**A. ** additional shear resistance from reinforcing steel

**B. ** additional shear stress that comes from accidental loading

**C. ** possibility of failure of concrete by diagonal tension

**D. ** possibility of crushing of concrete by diagonal compression

The two vectors [1,1,1] and [1, a, a^{2}], where a = , are

**A. ** Orthonormal

**B. ** Orthogonal

**C. ** Parallel

**D. ** Collinear

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Dot product of two vectors = 1 + a + a2 = 0

Dot product of two vectors = 1 + a + a2 = 0
