How is the Shear Capacity of a Section is calculated in Continuous Beam?
The Shear force and bending moment diagrams show the section capacities (in grey). See extract from the Continuous Beam Help file below:
NOTE: The following extracts are from South African Standards (SANS), see relevant Codes and Clauses.
Continuous Beam compares the design shear stress against the shear capacity. Where the shear stress (v) exceeds the shear capacity (Vc), shear reinforcement must be provided in the form of links. Shear enhancement is taken into consideration where the section or concentrated load under consideration is closer to the face of a support than twice the effective depth (d).
