Critical Sections for Maximum Shear in

Maximum shear is typically found at supports
Where support loading conditions ensure inclined cracks form outward
from the support into the span, loads applied within distance d from the
support are transferred directly to the support by compression concrete
above the crack. Under such conditions, ACI permits sections located less
than a distance d from face of the support to be designed for the same
shear Vu as that computed at distance d.
Reduction must be applied carefully, as not applicable in all cases
Pattern Loading Effect on Shear at
•Maximum shear at span ends/
supports occurs with live load over
entire span
•Maximum shear at other points
occur with live load acting over the
portion of the span from that
location to the furthest support
•Maximum shear at mid-span occurs
with live load acting over half span
•Can approximate maximum shear
at other locations by linear shear
force envelope connecting maximum
shear at supports and mid-span
