Abstract: In the Recommendations of Rilem TC 162-TDF [1] a design method is suggested entitled "sigma - epsilon Design Method", which also contains a chapter dealing with the shear design. The handling of this design method is very simple because the shear resistance not depends on the real magnitude of the strain. Within the Brite / Euram project BRPR-CT98-0813 [2] tests were carried out to check this design proposal. Due to the results found within this project it can be concluded, that the shear design proposed by Rilem TC 162-TDF [1] is a simple way to calculate the shear resistance with a sufficient margin of safety. However, in the final draft of the Rilem Recommendations TC 162-TDF [3] the equivalent flexural tensile strength is replaced by the residual flexural tensile strength and the factor which takes into account the height of the member is replaced by the factor used in the final draft of the EC 2. So these changes must be adapted in the Rilem proposal.
