### Concrete Shear Strength Another Perspective

Concrete strength values are usually specified as the lower bound compressive strength of either a cylindrical or cubic specimen as determined by standard test procedures The strengths of concrete is dictated by its function Very low strength 14 MPa 2 000 psi or less concrete may be used when the concrete must be lightweight Lightweight concrete is often achieved by 28 supporting concrete thick slab led to collapse Johnson et al 2007 Mitchell et al 2011 This 29 shear failure occurred in the 1200 mm 48 in thick slab that did not contain any shear 30 reinforcement The shear failure was very brittle and lead to the sudden collapse of one half of 31 the overpass structure The capacity Vc of concrete in sections reinforced for shear is 2 0bwd√fc The strength of stirrups can be added to the concrete strength Vc to determine the total strength of a section Required stirrups must be spaced no more than d 2 apart where Vn bwd lt 6 0√fc Where Vn bwd gt 6 0√fc maximum stirrup spacing becomes d 4 The compressive strut capacity of 2020 09 02 nbsp 0183 32 The shear strength of a material is defined as its ability to resist forces that cause the material s internal structure to slide against itself The shear strength of a material can be measured in either the vertical or horizontal direction For example if the force causes the object s layers to slide in the horizontal direction the material will exhibit horizontal shear strength shear strength of concrete Vc KfcKvc Table 2b contains values Kvs for determining nominal stirrup capacity Vs Kvs Av s Table 2c gives values Kvc in kips Kvc is the shear strength of concrete when required stirrups areused in members made with fc 4000 psi concrete The nominal strength of a rectangular section is the sum of concrete strength Vc and

Shear wall concrete strength in plane and out of plane is calculated for the applied loads and compared with the code permissible shear capacity For illustration and comparison purposes the following figures provide a sample of the input modules and results obtained from an spWall model created for the reinforced concrete shear wall in this example Shear wall concrete strength in plane and out of plane is calculated for the applied loads and compared with the code permissible shear capacity For illustration and comparison purposes the following figures provide a sample of the input modules and the FEA results obtained from an spWall model created for the reinforced concrete shear wall in this example 8 Figure 2 Shear strength is a term used in soil mechanics to describe the magnitude of the shear stress that a soil can sustain The shear resistance of soil is a result of friction and interlocking of particles and possibly cementation or bonding at particle contacts Due to interlocking particulate material may expand or contract in volume as it is subject to shear strains If soil 2014 11 15 nbsp 0183 32 The shear strength of concrete Canada is given by the formula Vc 0 2 x λ x ᶲc x √f c x bw x d Where λ 1 for normal weight concrete ᶲc 0 6 f c compressive strength of concrete bw width d depth Suppose we have a dowel say rebar in the center of a concrete panel with thickness 150mm If the dowel 15 mm is placed at the centreline of the panel then A concrete column used to hag a floor can be considered as an example of pure tension A concrete beam subjected to bending action has the tensile and compressive stresses in the same section However consideration of the tensile strength of the concrete in flexural design is minimal as the section could crack and lose its stiffness provided
