In this paper, a new formula to predict the ultimate shear strength of a plate girder is proposed on the basis of the numerical analysis. The analysis of an end panel isolated from the whole structure can describe the stress distribution in the shear panel sufficiently. A stress distribution model in the ultimate state is constructed by generalization of the numerical results. In order to show its validity, the predicted strength by the proposed formula is compared with those by Basler and Rockey et al., and also with the available experimental data.
