Use a large value of c1.   What will happen is the other failure modes such
as concrete spall or concrete pryout will govern.

BTW - even though c1 is generally defined as the distance to the edge in
the direction of shear, I think in the case of a shear force parallel to an
edge, c1 would end up being the distance to the edge perpendicular to the

shear force parallel to an edge

D.6.2.1 - footnote c - recognizes the fact that c1 in psi 6 doesn't make
sense but equation D-21 includes Vb which still has c1 embedded in it.
what value to use when c1 = infinity?
