Does anyone can suggest a procedure to be used for design of corbels subject to substantial tension force Nuc (Nuc>Vu) ?
ACI 318 says that their procedure has been verified only for axial forces not exceeding shear ones. I think that the conservative approach is not to use shear-friction design but pure shear of rebars for design for Av or reduce coefficient of friction in an appropriate way.
