Introduce the required values and obtain automatically the concrete punching shear resistance and the utilisation ratio. If nedded, it is also possibe to include the reinforcement and calculate its utilisation ratio.

Punching shear verification

Explanation

Punching shear failure: When applying a concentrate load or reaction over a slab, it is produced a concentration of shear stress around it. The failure arrives when this shear stress, measured in a concentric perimeter at a certain distance from the loaded area, exceeds the concrete punching shear resistance. The following picture shows the typical appearance of the punching shear failure. It is important to highlight that this failure is brittle and the floor finishing normally hides the possible cracks before the collapse of the structure or the asphalt in the case of building/parkings.
