Ambiguities associated with shear in reinforced concrete have led to a misunderstanding of what shear is and how it affects structural members. This paper therefore explores the notion of shear, using mechanics and finite elements as a tool to describe this force. A series of postulates are also presented in order to define the nature and characteristics of shear. The theory is then applied to structural elements such as beams and slabs. Various shear concepts, such as shear enhancement, shear in slabs and punching shear are also examined.
