That's correct.  No minimum shear reinforcement required.  Shear reinforcement required only for loads exceeding design strength.

about ACI






ACI 318 - 11.5.5.1 States that a minimum area of shear reinforcement shall be provided in all reinforced concrete flexural members (prestressed and nonprestressed) where factored shear force Vu exceeds 1/2 x Phi x Vc;

except:
(a) Slabs and footings;

Do I interpret this to mean that in slabs and footings minimum shear reinf. is not required unless Vu>Phi x Vc?
