Which shear force does RF-CONCRETE Surfaces use for the check of shear force?


The RF-CONCRETE Surfaces module uses the resulting shear force from the basic internal forces vx and vy. The internal force vx corresponds to the transversal force diagram in the direction of the local axis x of the surface and the internal force vy to the shear force distribution in the direction of the local axis y.

The resulting shear force, which is also used in the shear force design, is then calculated via:

vEd = √(vx² + vy²)
