Abstract:
Changes are proposed for Chapter 11 of the 1971 ACI Building Code to unify and simplify design for shear. The propsed changes deal with the basic shear equation, the deep beam shear equations and corbel design. Minor changes are proposed in the equations for axially loaded beams an prestressed concrete.
