Input: 






(Note: All input Metric units are converted to English units
for the equations below and then the output English units are converted back to
Metric) 

ASD Chapter 2, MSJC Code, check shear stress in reinforced masonry wall: 









Moment on unit length of wall due to lateral load (M  inlb/ft or Nm/m ) 

Maximum design shear (V  lb/ft or N/m) 

Distance from the extreme compression fiber to centroid of tension
reinforcement (d  in or mm) 

Specified compressive stress of masonry unit (f'm  psi or MPa) 

Width of wall section (b  ft or m) 

Net shear area of the masonry (Anv  in^2/ft or mm^2/ft) 

Net crosssectional area of the masonry (An  in^2/ft or mm^2/ft) 

Axial compressive load (P  lb/ft or N/m) 

Crosssectional area of the shear reinforcement (Av  in^2/ft or mm^2/m) 

Spacing of the shear reinforcement (s  in or mm) 

Allowable tensile stress in reinforcement (Fs  psi or MPa)
