Load And Resistance Factor Design For Shear In Buildings

Based on the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) specifications for load-and-resistance factor design (LRFD) for buildings, the shear capacity V , kip (kN = 4.448 X kip), of flexural members may be computed from the following:

Stifferners are required when the shear exceeds Vu. In unstiffened girders, h/tw may not exceed 260. In girders with stiffeners, maximum h/tw permitted is 2,000/(Fyf)½for a/h less than equal to 1.5 or 14,000/(Fyf(Fyf+16.5) )½ for a/h > 1.5, where Fyf is the specified minimum yield stress of the flange.
For shear capacity with tension – field action, see the AISC specification for LRFD.
