Reinforced Concrete Slab Shear Prediction Competition: Entries and Discussion

March 2010
ACI Structural Journal;Mar/Apr2010, Vol. 107 Issue 2, p249
Academic Journal
The article focuses on the study on how to predict the reinforced concrete slab shear. It states that the expression used to estimate shear strength is not popular for its accuracy rather it is popular with its simplicity. It mentions that the riddle of shear defeats even the best analysis tools and it is better to deal with it with the use of pragmatic measures.
