# 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 `V _{Ed}`, calculated without reduction by

`β`, should satisfy the condition:

V ≤ 0,5 _{Ed}b _{w}d ν f_{cd} | (6.5) |

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

## Recommendation

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

(f in [MPa])_{ck} | (6.6N) |
