# 3.6 Shear capacity

 Page 1 / 1

#### Introduction to shear capacity

The fifth limit state for beams is Shear Capacity. The shear capacity of a beam is the maximum amount of shear thebeam can withstand before failure. Usually the shear capacity is the controlling limit state on short spans withlarge loads.

#### Equations for shear capacity

The shear strength relationship is:

${V}_{u}\le {\phi }_{v}{V}_{n}$
where
• ${V}_{u}$ = maximum shear based on the controlling combination of factored loads
• ${\phi }_{v}=0.9$ = resistance factor for shear
• ${V}_{n}$ = nominal shear strength

The design shear strength then can be found depending, first, on whether or not the web is stiffened. If the webof a singly or doubly symmetric beam is unstiffened and $\frac{h}{{t}_{w}}\le 260$ , then Chapter F2 in the Specification Section of the Manual (page 16.1-35) can be used to define ${V}_{n}$ , otherwise, Appendix F2 in the Manual (page 16.1-102) can be used.

As long as the shear strength, ${V}_{u}$ , of a beam satisfies the maximum shear strength, ${\phi }_{v}{V}_{n}$ , value, shear is not a limiting factor of the beam design. If the shear strength, does exceed the maximum allowableshear, a different load or a different cross-section must be chosen.

how can chip be made from sand
are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
learn
da
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

Application of nanotechnology in medicine
has a lot of application modern world
Kamaluddeen
yes
narayan
what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

nanocopper obvius

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
Hafiz
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
