Punching Shear DesignPunching Shear Design

Design of reinforced concrete flat slabs for punching shear. You can design slabs at internal, edge and corner columns by specifying the distance from the support to the slab edge; the program automatically determines the shear perimeters. You can also enter the longitudinal reinforcement (that affects the shear capacity) in the two main directions.

The design output gives the critical load case with corresponding amounts of punching shear reinforcement needed for each perimeter.
