Shear Sliding in beams
As stated in the book: " seismic design of reinforced concrete and masonry buildings by paulay and pristley - Page.130", if the shear stress exceed 0.4√(fck), sliding shear will occur ( through depth crack). However, if thats the case, then the stirrups and concrete won't be participating in the shear force transfer and the transfer takes place only through longitudinal reinforcement ( acting as dowel bars).
Are there any codal provisions incorporating this statement, if so please direct me to it. Also, please correct me if my understanding is wrong.
