shear load

shear load

That load which tends to cause the sliding of one part of a member over another. Usually, it is a compression- or tension-type load.

Shear strength, stiffness, and energy dissipation of walls with various aspect ratios were evaluated on the unit length basis, in terms of unit shear load (v) (kN/m (kip/ft.
To illustrate the racking resistance of shear walls with the effective aspect ratios, the racking loads (F) were normalized by the effective wall length, and the subsequent analysis was based on unit shear load (v) (kN/m (kip/ft.
The holes were located towards the slab supports to generate the maximum shear load.
At the point of ult imate shear load, therefore, the failure was likely initiated by a tensile failure in the weak Z-direction prior to the apparent shearing along the intended shear plane.
However, this assumes that the shear load is distributed uniformly to the top of the wall, when in fact the shear load is distributed according to stiffness.
For members under flexure and shear load, the following simple formula for shear strength contribution of the concrete, (American Concrete Institute, 2007) is used (Equation 2):
With [beta] = 1, the yield forces between tensile and shear load change in a linear way.
The IFF modes distinguish between matrix failure due to tension (Mode A), compression (Mode B) or combined compression and shear load (Mode C) [3] (Figure 1).
Ultimate shear load and failure modes were predicted by truss analogy approach.
Standard qualifications tests per ASTM D4161 require the joint to withstand a two times pressure class test and a partial vacuum both while in an angularly deflected alignment and under severe shear load to assure an absolutely water tight joint.
The lowest stress could be observed in the ACL lateral fibers under tensile and shear load.
