D1.J.2.2 Shear Stress

Beam Shear Stress

Allowable beam shear stress on the gross section must conform to Clause 3.2.4-2 of the API code:

Fv = 0.4·Fy

The maximum applied beam shear stress is per Eqn 3.2.4-1:

fv = V / 0.5 A

Torsional Shear Stress

Allowable torsional shear stress per Eqn. 3.2.4-4:

Fvt = 0.4·Fy

Fvt is the maximum torsional shear stress per Clause 3.2.4-3 of the API code.
