factor of safety for shear in RC-Columns

Dear Sirs

 

Could I get advice for the following inquiries :

 

- Why does the safety factor for shear in columns is very high when I use only external stirrup ?

 

- Why does the safety factor for shear in column with internal stirrup is less than that of the column without internal stirrup ?

 

Please , Could you take a look for attached captures and file.

 

Note : If you use any capture for explanation . Kindly send it as attached.

 

Thanks in advance

I can't see such problem. Could you send me the file where you have the 'middle' stirrups defined?

What was the way you generated this reinforcement distribution in the column?
