Calculate Notched Bending Member Shear Strength

The following is for calculating shear strength of circular or rectangular bending member notched on the tension face.


Fv - Reference design value for shear
An - *Cross section area of member at notch
d - Depth of unnotched bending member
dn - Depth of member remaining at the notch
Cd - Load duration factor
Cm - Wet service factor
Ct - Temperature factor
Ci - Incising factor
TEF - Time effect factor
*For rectangular member, An = bdn
V(ASD) - shear strength
V(LRFD) - shear strength
