Longitudinal Shear Verification Table


  • Generate a table summarizing the longitudinal shear checks. .



From the main menu, select [Rating] tab > [Type : Steel Bridge] > [Assessment Code : CS454/20] > [Results] group > [Assessment Result Tables] > [Longitudinal Shear Verification]




Element : Element ID

Part : The i- or j-end of the element, giving the Node ID at that end in square brackets [Node ID]

Section Type : Compact or noncompact

Rating Case : The relevant Load Combinations for Assessment. Assessment check is performed for 12 sets of concurrent forces for each load combination.

q : The longitudinal shear per unit length.

Pim : The nominal initial mean static strength.

Pa : The assessed static strength.

qr : The longitudinal shear resistance.

q/qr : The ratio of shear flow to longitudinal shear resistance.

q/qr_limit : The maximum value of the ratio of shear flow to longitudinal shear resistance.

Check : An overall indication whether the section passed all checks and is OK or Not Good (NG)
