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, design shear reinforcement for reinforced masonry wall: 

Net crosssectional 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)
