Question
Can you please tell me what is meant by legged stirrups and their types and applications?

Answer
Dear Ahmad

2 or 3 legged stirrup simply means that transversal reinforcement has 2 or 3 vertical extension to bear the shear due to shear or torsion. For details of calculation you should take a look at reference books for RC design.
