TECHNICAL PAPER

A theory of shear transfer in initially uncracked concrete is presented. The theory is based on the truss model and incorporates a

softened compression stress-strain relation along the concrete s/ruls.

For reinforced concrete specimens experiencing shear transfer across

a plane, acrilical zone in the vicinity of the shear plane is identified.

Within this zone, the stress distribution is assumed to be approximately uniform after the formation of cracks. The governing equations derived from the theory can then be applied to this crilical zone

to obtain strain responses for the given stress conditions. The ultimate shear transfer strength is identified by tracing the complete shear

stress-strain history using electronic computer. Comparison of theoretical predictions to 32 test results reported in the literature gives

good agreement.

The theory predicts that steel reinforcement parallel to the shear

plane also contributes to the shear transfer strength, while the shearfriction concept in the current design codes recognizes only the contribution of steel reinforcement crossing the shear plane. Since the

current design codes are based on test specimens with heavy reinforcement parallel to the shear plane, they could be unconservative

for the practical cases where only light reinforcemenl is provided

parallel to the shear plane.

in the compression struts formed approximately parallel to the direction of the cracks. 12. 16 The compression in

the struts and the tension provided by the reinforcing

bars across and parallel to the shear plane constitute a

truss-like action. Although this truss-like action is well

recognized, 18 direct application of the truss model

would result in a much higher prediction of the shear

strength. An attempt was made 8 to bring the predicted

shear strength in line with the measured strength by introducing shear stresses in the compression strut resulting in a biaxial failure condition. 17 18 However, this additional shear stress in the compressional strut considerably complicates the truss model theory.

The fundamental difficulty in predicting the shear

transfer strength of initially uncracked concrete is in the

uncertainty of the compressive strength of the strut. In

a study of the behavior of reinforced concrete panels

reinforcing steels; shear properties; shear strength; stress-strain relationships;

structural analysis.

The problem of shear transfer across a plane in concrete has been studied extensively in the past 15 years.

Through experimental observations, it is established

that there are basically two kinds of distinctively different behavior in shear transfer problems: shear transfer across an initially cracked plane, and shear transfer

across an initially uncracked plane. The behavior in the

former case is governed largely by the shear-slip characteristics of the cracked plane. Aggregate interlock,

dowel action, and constraints in a direction normal to

the shear plane affect the resistance to shear. 2 3.4 5 7 The

final failure occurs along the existing crack [Fig. I (a)]

with little or no additional cracks formed across the existing crack, 8 except in cases with a high percentage of

steel crossing the initial crack. 5. 7 For design purposes,

the shear strength is predicted using an empirical formula9 based on the shear friction theory.s.to.tt

In contrast, shear failure across an initially uncracked plane occurs after numerous cracks formed in

a direction inclined to the shear plane [Fig. I (b)]. The

final failure is usually due to the crushing of concrete

under predominately shear stresses, it was found that

compressive strength of the diagonal struts formed after the cracking of the concrete can be much lower than

the standard cylinder strength. 19 20 This phenomenon

has been called the softening of concrete. This softening of the concrete struts is related to the tensile strain

in a direction perpendicular to the struts. Using the

softened stress-strain relation proposed in Reference 19,

the shear strength and behavior of various reinforced

concrete members had been predicted with good accuracy. 21-2s

BASIC EQUATIONS

The equilibrium, compatibility, and stress-strain

equations for a reinforced concrete element are first

presented. Stresses and strains are considered positive in

tension and are assumed uniformly distributed.

Stress transformation conditions (equilibrium)

A concrete element is reinforced with longitudinal

bars in the /-direction and with transverse bars in the

!-direction as shown in Fig. 2. It is subjected at its edges

to the in-plane normal stresses a, and a, as well as the

shear stresses r 11 After diagonal cracking, a series of

diagonal compression struts is formed in the diagonal

or d-direction, resulting in a truss-like action. It is

assumed that the element takes only compressive stress

ad in the direction of the compression struts, and tension stress a, in the r-direction transverse to the

compression struts. The shear stress rd, is assumed zero.

The angle between the 1-t and d-r coordinate systems is

designated as a. This angle is also the angle of inclination of the compression struts with respect to the longitudinal axis.

The stresses a1, a1, and Tit in the reinforced concrete

element are resisted jointly by the concrete and the steel

reinforcement. The stresses contributed by concrete are

designated as a1"' a1"' and r,,, where the subscript c denotes concrete. The concrete stresses in the two coordinate systems 1-t and d-r are transformed according to

the usual stress transformation equations

RESEARCH SIGNIFICANCE

In this study, the softened truss model theory was

applied to the shear transfer problem and was found to

be successful in predicting the shear transfer strength as

well as the shear deformations of 32 initially uncracked

specimens. Contrary to the well-known shear friction

concept, the theory predicts that the ultimate failure is

caused by the crushing of concrete in the compressional struts formed after cracking of concrete. Furthermore, the transverse reinforcement parallel to and

in the vicinity of the shear plane also has an effect on

the shear strength. Since the ACI shear friction provisions are based on test specimens with very high trans-

CONDENSATION OF EQUATIONS AND

SOLUTION PROCEDURE

The preceding 11 equations, Eq. (6) through (12) and

(14) through (17), contain 14 variables:;;, fr, a,, an r 11 ,

E1, En "f 1n ad, a, Ed, E, a, and A. For the shear transfer

test specimens studied in this paper (described later), a,

is specified. The other two stresses a 1 and r 11 are related

to the external applied load P 1 by

(18)

where K = ratio of maximum transverse stress to maximum shear stress. If the stresses are distributed uniformly over the whole specimen, Ka and Kr equal to

unity, and K = 1/h.

In this study, K will be assumed a known value in the

critical zone. The justification for assuming a constant

K shall be explained later. Using Eq. (22) and a specified a,, the 14 variables listed previously are reduced to

12 unknowns. By selecting one of them as a known

value, the remaining 11 unknowns can be solved by the

11 equations, Eq. (6) through (12) and Eq. (14) through

(17). A solution procedure can be implemented by first

reducing the number of equations.

It should be observed that the three stress-strain relationships of concrete, Eq. (12), (14), and (15), are

given in the d-r axis, and are expressed in terms of six

unknowns, ad, a,, Ed, E, a, and A. It is, therefore, possible to transform the stresses and strains in the 1-t axis

(!;, fr, E1 EJ onto the d-r axis, so that the equations can

be reduced to five equations containing the six unknowns. The two equations besides the three stressstrain relationships are derived as follows:

the six unknowns listed in the preceding paragraphs. By

selecting a value for Ed, the other five unknowns, ad, a,

E, a, and A, can be solved by Eq. (12), (14), (15), (23),

and (25). Ed is selected because it is expected to vary

monotonically as the load is increased. Once these six

unknowns are obtained, the stress and strain in the 1-t

axis (T,, E,, E,, "f1, j,, j,) can be easily calculated.

The iterative procedure to solve the five nonlinear simultaneous algebraic equations is as follows:

1. Select a value for Ed.

2. Assume a value of a,.

obtained for the selected Ed value. Otherwise, a new a,

is calculated by a bisection method and Steps 2 to 7 are

repeated.

through 8. In this way, a set of solution for various Ed

values can be obtained.

10. The value of Tit, E1, E, "f 1,, j,, and j, can be calculated from Eq. (8), (9), (10), (11), (16) and (17), respectively. The relationship of any two variables, such as T1,

versus "( 1,, can be plotted.

COMPARISON WITH TESTS

The theory described in the previous steps will now

be applied to the shear transfer problem. A typical test

specimen for shear transfer across a vertical shear plane

is shown in Fig. 4. To apply the theory, it is necessary

to know the ratios among the three in-plane stresses a,,

a, and Tit. These stresses should also be uniformly distributed over the region of interest. However, examination of the test specimen in Fig. 4 shows that the

stresses cannot be expected to distribute uniformly over

the entire specimen, nor can they be expected to be

uniform in the central test region. Before cracking, the

shear stress along the shear plane T 1, should be considerably larger near the two ends of the shear plane where

the open slot disrupts the smooth geometry and introduces local stress concentration. For the same reason,

the transverse normal stress in the direction of the load

a, is larger near the two ends of the shear plane. The

normal stress in the longintudinal direction a, is small

and can be neglected.

After diagonal cracking, a cracked region is observed in the vicinity of the shear plane and eventually

leads to failure. This cracked region will be called the

critical zone and is the shaded area shown in Fig. 4.

A typical width of this zone was observed to be about

2 to 3 in. for a 10 in. wide specimenY Within this zone,

the extensive cracking of the concrete had an effect of

redistributing the shear stress and the transverse normal stress more evenly along the shear plane. The

cracking also reduced the stiffness in the zone as compared to that outside of the zone. This would cause a

redistribution of the compression stress in the transverse direction to become more evenly distributed

across sections perpendicular to the shear plane. Thus,

within this critical zone the stresses might be assumed

to be uniform and the theory developed in the previous

sections could be used. More specifically, the shear

stress T" was estimated as the average stress over the

entire shear plane (i.e., Kr = 1); and the compressive

stress in the transverse direction a, was estimated as the

average stress over a cross-sectional plane perpendicular to the shear plane (i.e., Ka = 1). The K ratio, therefore, becomes 1/h as shown in Fig. 4. The normal stress

in the longitudinal direction a, is assumed to be zero

[Fig. 4(b)].

In determining the reinforcement ratio, the crosssectional area of the longitudinal steel across the shear

plane is divided by the area of the shear plane to obtain

p 1, and the area of the transverse steel is divided by the

cross-sectional area of a plane perpendicular to the

shear plane to obtain p,. As the cracks in the critical

zone are constrained by the two rows of transverse

steel, and the transverse steel is almost uniformly deployed over the whole section, the use of the average

steel ratio over the whole section for the transverse reinforcement ratio in the critical zone is considered appropriate.

The initially uncracked shear transfer tests reported

in the literature were studied by tracing the shear stressshear strain history by the method as previously described. Fig. 5 and 6 show the shear stress versus shear

strain curves for Specimens M2 and M6, respectively,

obtained from References 13 and 16. For convenience,

the starting point is taken at the zero stress state and

successive tracing is done from uncracked state to

cracked state of the concrete, even though the imposed

ratio between the normal stress and shear stress is only

applicable to the cracked state as explained previously.

Fig. 5 and 6 each provide three curves: one experimental and two theoretical. One theoretical curve is

based on the softened compression stress-strain relationship given by Eq. (12) and (14) and shown in Fig.

3(a), while the other one utilizes the nonsoftened

compression stress-strain curve specified by the CEBFIP Model CodeY The CEB-FIP curve has a parabolic-rectangular shape. The ascending parabolic curve

up to a strain of 0.002 is described by Eq. (12a), if the

coefficient 'A is taken as unity, and the continuing horizontal branch terminates at a strain of 0.0035. Fig. 5

and 6 show that the theoretical curves using the softened compression stress-strain curve agree very well

with the experimental curve. In contrast, the theoretical curves based on the nonsoftened compression stressstrain curve overestimates considerably the maximum

stress as well as the strain at maximum stress.

It should be mentioned that the truss model theory is

not intended for the prediction of behavior before

cracking. Tests in Fig. 5 and 6 show quite reasonably

that the specimens before cracking are considerably

stiffer than those predicted. Only when the ultimate

strength is approached can the predicted shear stresses

and shear strains become valid .

Push-off tests

The two specimens M2 and M6, discussed previously

and shown in Fig. 4, are subjected to the so-called

push-off loading. A total of 20 push-off tests is reported in References 13, 16, and 28 for initially uncracked specimens. The test results are compiled in Table 1, including the predicted shear stresses 7"'"''' the

shear strains at peak stress 'Ymax,n and the longitudinal

steel strains at peak stress E1 The shear stresses were

computed from Tmax,c = p,lbl, assuming K = l. Also,

assuming Ka = 1, then K = 1/h. For specimens No. 1

through 14, K = 10/10 = 1, and for specimens No. 15

through 20, K = 10/12 = 0.83. This means that the

shear stresses are assumed to be uniformly distributed

across the shear plane and the transverse stresses are

uniformly distributed on the plane perpendicular to

that.

A comparison of the calculated and experimental

maximum shear stresses is given in Fig. 7. The agreeACI Structural Journal I March-April1987

strengths is indeed very good. The mean value of the

ratio of the measured shear strength to calculated shear

strength is 1.054 and the standard deviation is 0.069.

Among the 20 tests, 4 of them (1.1A, 1.1B, 6.1, and

M.1) have only one row of longitudinal steel across the

shear plane. Since the theory is applicable to cases with

more evenly distributed reinforcements, appreciable error in prediction is expected for these four cases. In

fact, Table 1 shows that the test values in these cases

are 10 to 20 percent higher than the predicted values.

This indicates that other factors, such as aggregate interlocking and dowel action, which are not considered

in the present theory, may become relatively important

in these cases of low steel percentage. If these four

cases are discounted from Table 1, the remaining 16 results show excellent agreement between theory and test,

with a mean value of 1.030 and a standard deviation of

0.048, for the ratio of experimental shear strength to

calculated shear strength.

Fig. 7 also compares the experimental shear strength

to the theoretical shear strength based on nonsoftened

concrete. This theoretical prediction overestimates the

actual strength by about 50 percent.

To see how sensitive predicted shear strength is to the

assumption of the stress ratio K, results from different

K values ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 are calculated for the

first 14 cases in Table 1 and are shown in Table 2. The

ratios of the experimental to calculated maximum shear

stresses are plotted in Fig. 8 as a function of the K-ra-

K represents the degree of unevenness of the compressive stress distribution across a plane perpendicular to

the shear plane that could result in an increase or decrease of the compressive stress in the critical zone. The

insensitivity of the shear strength to the assumed K-ratio simply means that the shear strength is not sensitive

to the unevenness of the compressive stress distribution.

The choice of the simple expression K = 1/h would

have the advantage of simplicity and would provide

sufficient accuracy.

The sensitivity of shear strength to the assumption

made in determining the amount of transverse steel is

studied by comparing the results for two of the test

effect of the transverse steel ratio on the maximum

shear stress is plotted in Fig. 9. Fig. 9 shows that

changing the reinforcement ratio from the actual 0.0587

to 0.0293 or from 0.0587 to 0.088 results in a change of

shear strength by Jess than 4 percent. If, however, the

value of 0.0587 to the minimum practical values of

0.0025, then the reduction of shear strength is as large

as 25 percent. While the test specimens are heavily

reinforced in the transverse direction to force failure at

the shear plane, such heavy reinforcement parallel to

the shear plane is generally not available in practical

structures. Thus, design guidelines based solely on these

tests may not be conservative.

Also compared in Table 1 are the shear strains at

peak stress for the six specimens for which the test values were reported from measured slip across the shear

plane. A test shear $train is calculated by dividing the

measured slip by the gage distance across the shear

plane. A comparison of the calculated and experimental shear strains at maximum stress is given in Fig. 10.

The predicted shear strains at peak stress are in generally good agreement with the test values. The scatter

can be explained by the fact that the slip across the

shear plane was measured at one level across the shear

plane, while the predicted shear strain is an average

value.

generally higher test values is the existence of the additional steel bars to apply the longitudinal stresses and

the additional ties for the transverse steel bars. This

additional steel does not pass through the shear plane

and is therefore not taken into account in the calculation. However, it may be close enough to the shear

plane to be partially effective in the truss model action.

The effect of the longitudinal tensile stress on the

shear strength is plotted in Fig. 12, showing the ratio of

the calculated to experimental maximum shear stresses

for these six specimens as a function of the imposed

longitudinal tension stress. The effect of the longitudinal tension stress is correctly predicted.

Table 4 shows that the test value of shear strain at

peak stress is reasonably close to the predicted value for

the case with no applied tension. However, in the two

cases with imposed tension the calculated values are

three to four times greater than the test values. A close

look at the reported cracking pattern, 14 shown in Fig.

13, reveals the cause. For the specimens with imposed

longitudinal tension, E4U and E6U, the critical crack

zone is much narrower than that for specimen E1 U,

where no tension is imposed. Since the gage length

across the shear plane in these tests is kept constant and

is much larger than the width of the critical crack zone

in Specimens E4U and E6U, the resulting shear strains

based on this large gage length would show much reduced values. Should the observed narrower width of

crack zone be used as the gage length, the shear strains

of Specimens E4U and E6U would be closer to the values predicted by the theory.

Pull-off tests

In a pull-off test, 829 a tension force is applied in the

transverse direction of the test specimen to produce a

shear stress at the shear plane and a tensile stress in the

transverse direction (Fig. 14). 29 In the theoretical calculation, the tensile stress is modelled by a negative stress

ratio K = - 12/13 = - 0.92. However, it is recognized that the tensile stress in the transverse direction in

the critical zone may be larger than assumed, since the

tension is transmitted almost directly through the anchoring bars within the critical zone. The local distribution of tensile stress is difficult to estimate and the

calculated shear is expected to be somewhat greater

than the actual shear strength because the tensile stress

indeed is the result as shown in Fig. 15. The calculated

maximum shear stresses are mostly greater than the test

values.

the truss model and incorporates a softened compression stress-strain relation along the concrete struts.

2. The current ACI Building Code design criterion

for shear strength across a plane is based on the shear

friction theory. Since the shear-friction theory assumes

that the shear transfer strength is not a function of the

reinforcement parallel to the shear plane, the ACI provisions are derived from test specimens that use heavy

reinforcement parallel to and near the shear plane. The

proposed truss model theory, however, indicates that

this reinforcement could have a significant effect on the

shear transfer strength. For the practical cases of design with small percentages of reinforcement parallel to

the shear plane, the code provisions for initially uncracked concrete might be unconservative.

3. More tests are required for shear transfer specimens with light reinforcement of 0.2 to 2 percent parallel to the shear plane. The critical zone of the future

test specimens also should be carefully instrumented to

ascertain the strain field.

DISCUSSION

The proposed theory for shear transfer across aninitially uncracked plane in reinforced concrete is shown

to be sound. Excellent agreement between predicted

and measured shear strength is obtained for cases where

the stress distribution in a critcal zone encompassing the

shear plane is reasonably uniform after cracking of the

concrete. It is shown that the predicted shear strength

is not sensitive to the distribution of the compressive

stress applied in the transverse direction, nor is it sensitive to the amount of transverse reinforcement in the

specimen if a large amount of transverse reinforcement

is used. However, if a specimen is lightly reinforced in

the transverse direction near the shear plane, the reduction of shear strength can be substantial when compared to the shear strengths of specimens with heavy

transverse reinforcement reported in the literature.

According to the theory, the softening of concrete

after cracking of the concrete plays an important role

in determining the shear strength. Both the amount of

longitudinal reinforcement across the shear plane and

the transverse reinforcement near the shear plane are

important factors determining the degree of softening

of the concrete and therefore contribute to the shear

resistance across the shear plane. The longitudinal reinforcement has a more important role than that of the

transverse reinforcement in shaping the shear resistance

of the shear plane, as can be seen from both the test results and theoretical predicitons.

The literature contains reports of only nine test specimens to measure the slip across the shear plane. Despite the small number of tests and slip measurements

available, comparison of predicted and test shear

strains at peak stress shows general agreement. This is

another indication that the proposed theory is sound.

Since its incorporation into the ACI Building Code in

1971, the shear friction theory has been widely applied

in design practice. In this theory, it is assumed that the

shear transfer strength of reinforced concrete is a function of the longitudinal steel crossing the shear plane

and the compression strength of concrete, but it is not

a function of the transverse steel parallel to the shear

plane. This study shows, however, that the transverse

steel near the shear plane could have a significant effect on the shear transfer strength. Since the shear friction equations in the ACI Building Code were based on

test specimens with a very high percentage of transverse steel near the shear plane, they could be unconservative when applied to the practical cases of shear

transfer with a small percentage of transverse steel.
