At the limit state of collapse, an $$RC$$ beam is subjected to flexural moment $$200$$ $$kN$$-$$m$$, shear force $$20$$ $$kN$$ and torque $$9$$ $$kN$$-$$m$$. The beam is $$300$$ $$mm$$ wide and has a gross depth of $$425$$ $$mm,$$ with an effective cover of $$25$$ $$mm$$. The equivalent nominal shear stress $$\left( {{\tau _{ve}}} \right)$$ as calculated by using the design code turns out to the lesser than the design shear strength $$\left( {{\tau _c}} \right)$$ of the concrete.

The equivalent shear force $$\left( {{V_e}} \right)$$ is
