A number of calculation equations for the design shear capacity of steel reinforced concrete (SRC) members with simple support are given in the Design Standards for Railway Structures and Commentary (Steel-Concrete Hybrid Structures). However, there are some equations that are applicable to a certain member because the scope of application for these equations is unclear. In addition, support conditions for transverse beams on railway viaducts are different from simple supports because both transverse beam ends are fixed. In this study, the scope of application for existing equations was clarified, and an equation to calculate the shear capacity of SRC beams under antisymmetric moment distribution was proposed.
