### Expert Tip: Concrete shear design based on AASHTO LRFD 5

Solving the previous example from full iteration Now it’s time to solve the previous example from full iteration. For simplicity, interaction with flexure is not considered. In other words, it is assumed that the status is in a pure shear c...

### Expert Tip: Concrete shear design based on AASHTO LRFD 4

Findings and remarks 1. We can calculate the feasible crack angle ranges for each εx and vu/f’c combination. θ min corresponds to concrete c...

### Expert Tip: Concrete shear design based on AASHTO LRFD 3

Optimum crack angle θ From the previous example, we can catch that there are some possible crack angle ranges for the given εx and vu/f’c. N...

### Expert Tip: Concrete shear design based on AASHTO LRFD 2

Longitudinal reinforcement Believe it or not, longitudinal forces are caused by shear, and we do need to design/check for these longitudinal...
