Lightweight concrete members requiring design shear reinforcement: the reduction factor νl

Eurocode 2 part 1-1: Design of concrete structures   11.6.2 (1)

The reduction factor for the crushing resistance of the concrete struts is νl.


The recommended value of νl follows from:

νl = 0,5 (1 - flck / 250) (11.6.6N)

where flck is the characteristic compressive strength of lightweight concrete, see Table 11.3.1.

For lightweight concrete νl should not be modified in accordance with Note 2 of § 6.2.3 (3).
