Looking through table 9.3A of 1991 NDS, I am finding lag shear values that are significantly higher than the equivalent table, 11J from 2005 NDS. The 1991 values seem to range somewhere between 20% and 100% higher than the 2005 values. A similar issue occurs with tables 9.3B and 11k, respectively, and perhaps others as well.
I imagine there is a fairly simple explanation for this discrepancy, but I am not sure what it is. Can someone help me out?
