Enter the shear force (N) and the shear strength (N/m*2) into the Shear Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Shear Area.

## Shear Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Shear Area.

SHA = SF / SS

- Where SHA is the Shear Area (m^2)
- SF is the shear force (N)
- SS is the shear strength (N/m*2)

To calculate a shear area, divide the shear force by the shear strength.

## How to Calculate Shear Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Shear Area.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the shear force (N).
- The shear force (N) is given as: 1,000.

- Next, determine the shear strength (N/m*2).
- The shear strength (N/m*2) is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Shear Area using the equation above:

SHA = SF / SS

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

SHA = 1,000 / 10 = 100.00 (m^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

shear force (N) = 2,000

shear strength (N/m*2) = 20

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..
