Shear Design: One-Way Slab
Shear design for a slab is similar to shear design for wide members. Therefore the requirement for no shear design is :
ÝVc ≥ Vu
Vu = the allowable shear for the concrete slab. The allowable shear can be calculated here.
Similar to beams, the critical shear section will act a distance "d" away from the face of the support.
d = The depth to the rebar
