 Summary:
 The design of concrete members for shear without stirrups, except for the minimum required, has become a major issue worldwide. It was noticed that the shear capacity of concrete element according to the Eurocode 2 often gives significant smaller values than the one predicted by former codes. This fact brought into focus the assessment of the existing structures which were built with minimum shear reinforcement. Most of the Code provisions for shear for members without shear reinforcement are based on empirical relationships. In general, Eurocode 2 doesn’t make a difference between reinforced and prestressed elements. Several clauses in EN1992-1-1 which deal with the shear design are critically reviewed in the paper.
