Concrete Slab Design

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 [1]:

ÝVc ≥ Vu

where:

Vc = The shear acting in the concrete
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.

where:

d = The depth to the rebar
