Members not requiring design shear reinforcement: the strength reduction factor ν

Eurocode 2 part 1-1: Design of concrete structures   6.2.2 (6)

The shear force VEd, calculated without reduction by β, should satisfy the condition:

VEd ≤ 0,5 bw d ν fcd (6.5)

where ν is a strength reduction factor for concrete cracked in shear.


The recommended value of the strength reduction factor ν follows from:

  (fck in [MPa]) (6.6N)
