Abstract: A brief overview of shear demand and capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) walls is
presented in this paper. Procedure given in EC8 [1] is analysed and compared to analytical and
experimental results.
Shear capacity depends on the geometry of wall, amount of reinforcement, its layout and
detailing. Besides that, ductility demand of a wall reduces its shear capacity.
Existing analytical procedure for shear capacity of RC columns is used to predict shear
capacity of walls. It is shown in paper that the same procedure may be used for both walls and
columns. Analytical calculations are in good accordance with experimental results.
