4.3.5 No Shear Failures
The shear capacity of frame members is greater than the moment capacity.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is inadequate shear capacity in the columns or beams. Compare Ve with the member shear capacity, ϕVn, calculated in accordance with ACI 318 Appendix. The ratio Ve / ϕVn shall be less than or equal to 1.0.
