Formulas used to predict shear strength of reinforced concrete in different standards do not always correspond to each other due to the complexity of the shear transfer mechanism. Currently there is no generally accepted method of shear strength pridiction, however, traditionally, shear strength anticipation of a structural concrete elements is performed differently on members with or without shear reinforcement. These empirical approches tend to predict the shear strength too conservatively; alternatively, shear strength of concrete can be easily predicted by Mohr-Coulomb theory. In case of high-axial load and low shear reinforcement, the strength is likely to be determined by the concrete's shear crack. Therefore, a method to predict the strength of concrete with Mohr-circle has been proposed but the circles crossed the boundary and could not evaluate the strength correctly. Mohr circle can be used for prediction of diagonal tension failure strength but the circle cannot be evaluated. In this paper, Mohr circles were investigated considering all steps of cyclic loading until shear crack occurred. It also investigates a correlation between shear strength and normal strength through recognition of the Mohr-Coulomb failure criteria for each specimen.
