How to Calculate Nominal Shear Stress?
Nominal Shear Stress calculator uses nominal_shear_stress = (Total design shear force/(0.8*Capacity reduction factor*Overall thickness of wall*Horizontal length of wall)) to calculate the Nominal shear stress, The Nominal Shear Stress formula is defined by the help of total design force , capacity reduction factor , overall thickness of wall and horizontal length of wall. Nominal shear stress and is denoted by v_{u} symbol.
How to calculate Nominal Shear Stress using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Nominal Shear Stress, enter Total design shear force (V_{u}), Capacity reduction factor (φ), Overall thickness of wall (h) and Horizontal length of wall (l_{w}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Nominal Shear Stress calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.22549 = (5/(0.8*0.85*2*3)).
