In spite of long-term research efforts for the last several decades, the shear resistance mechanisms of an reinforced concrete (RC) member still remain as a complex and controversial problem. Therefore, different countries have own shear provisions based on different experimental and theoretical backgrounds. In this paper, six different shear design code models and modified SNiP shear code proposed in the authors’ previous paper were chosen to conduct a comparative study in terms of accuracy and level of safety. ACI-DAfStb database for reinforced concrete (RC) structures without transverse reinforcement was used, in which a total of 784 experimental tests results were included. The results of this study showed that the accuracy and safety level of modified SNiP equation is comparable with the current international building code models.
