  1. 1. Punching shear in concrete flat slabs supported on slender edge steel columns

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Pasha Jalal; Jose Andres Perez; [2020]
    Keywords : Punching shear; ATENA; FEA; precast slab; flat slab; top and foot plate.; Genomstansning; ATENA; FEA; plattbärlag; pelardäck; topp- och fotplåt.;

    Abstract : Punching shear is a failure mechanism caused by concentrated loads, creating a crack pattern that resembles a cone shape or piece of pie starting from the top surface of the slab and prolongs downwards. When the total shear force is greater than the shear resistance of the slab, it may eventually lead to punching shear failure. READ MORE
