Abstract : This report consists of 210 graphs of an equation relating shear stress to the following variables: average concrete stress, maximum concrete stress, concrete cylinder strength, reinforcing ratio, ultimate compressive concrete strain, and reinforcing steel strain. A wide range of variables was used for the solution of the equation to include most cases encountered. The figures will facilitate the determination of the steel stress in reinforced concrete beams with only tensile reinforcing at ultimate load. (Author)
