Average Shear Stress Formula
Can Someone tell me what "dt" is in this formula?
Thanks!

According to Equation G21 of the ANSI/AISC 36016;
Vn = 0.6F_{y}A_{w}C_{v1}, C_{v1} is 1.0 for rolled Wshaped
This mean that the equation should indicate the “t” as t_{w }= Web thickness. And d is the depth of the beam.
(Shear Stress) v = V (Shear Force) / dt_{w }
This applies to flexure shear only. Torsional shear is looked at differently.
