# Chapter 8 :

Shear Friction
(Ref.2 ch.16)

Subjects:

## Considering the shear strength of interfaces between

members or parts of members that can slip relative to one
another.
Among other cases, this includes the interface between a
beam and a slab cast later than the beam, but expected to
act in a composite manner. 2

8.1 Shear Friction

## Chapter 8 - Shear Friction

 The shear-carrying mechanism is known variously as
a. aggregate interlock,
b. interface shear transfer, or
c. shear friction. (this chapter)

##  The interface on which the shears act is referred to as the shear

plane or slip plane.

##  Three methods of computing shear transfer strengths have been

proposed in the literature:

## 1. Shear friction models,

2. Cohesion plus friction models, and
3. Horizontal shear models as occur in composite beams. 3

shear plane to the area of the shear Plane.

- Permanent Compression Force, perpendicular to the slip plane,
causes a normal stress on the slip plane in the concrete. If is
compressive, the normal stress adds to the compressive stress on the
concrete due to the reinforcement.

## - If Tensile forces Nu, act on the shear plane, they must be

equilibrated by tensile reinforcement provided in addition to the
shear-friction reinforcement.

8.1 Shear Friction

## Chapter 8 - Shear Friction

 Other Factors Affecting Shear Transfer:
1. Lightweight concrete: the resistance to slip along the shear
plane is smaller for lightweight-concrete specimens than for
normal-weight concrete specimens. This effect has been
accounted for by multiplying the coefficient of friction, , by
the correction factor for lightweight concrete, given in
3ACI318.14 22.9.4.2

Friction:

 Shored or Unshored Construction:
ACI 17.2 ACI318.14 22.3.3.2 & 22.5.4.2 allow shored or unshored:

## 1. Unshored  precast beam support the selfweight and the be

2. Shored  precast beam is shored and supported by shoring
formwork system to carry out the total loads.

## Tests have shown that the ultimate strength of a composite

beam is the same whether the member was shored or unshored

 Horizontal Shear:
Tie for Horizontal Shear: ACI 17.5 ACI318.14 16.4.4(Minimum required)

The tie spacing shall not exceed four times the least dimension of the
supported element, which is usually the thickness of the slab, but not
more than 24 in. The ties must be fully anchored both in the beam
stem and in the slab.
