Design Shear Reinforcement For Reinforced Masonry Wall:
(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, design shear reinforcement for reinforced masonry wall:
Net cross-sectional area per unit length of wall (An - in^2/ft or mm^2/m)
Allowable shear stress resisted by the shear reinforcement per unit length of wall (Fvs - psi/ft or Mpa/m)
Distance from the extreme compression fiber to centroid of tension reinforcement (d - in or mm)
Allowable tensile stress of reinforcement (Fs - psi or MPa)
Spacing of shear reinforcement (s - in or mm)
