Punching shear is a failure mechanism of shallow concrete elements when subjected to concentrated forces. It arises when high concentrated loads are applied to smaller portions of a slab, or as a result of high column reactions in flat slabs, pad footings or very shallow beams. The resulting failure mode is a punch through the concrete element
In order to avoid this kind of failure in slabs, there are two options available to a structural engineer: (1) is to size the concrete element such that the punching shear stress is less than the concrete shear strength of the concrete element. (2) Design shear reinforcement to resist punching shear.
In this post, we are more concerned about the second option i.e. the provision of shear reinforcement to resist punching shear, particularly in flat slabs.
The Eurocode requires that the punching shear verification is carried out at the column face and at the basic control perimeter 2d from the face of the column. Figures 2 & 3 shows the basic control perimeter for different types of columns in a flat slab arrangement.
Procedure for Design
The procedure for carrying out punching design can be divided into four basic steps. This steps are explained below
Step 1: Punching Shear Verification at the Column Face
The first step towards designing for punching shear is to verify its effect at the column face. At the column face, the punching shear stress must be less than the maximum shear strength of the concrete element, else the section will have to be resized or the strength of the concrete element increased. Mathematically, this can be expressed as
- vEd = applied punching shear stress
- vRd,max = maximum concrete shear strength
- fck = is the characteristic concrete strength.
- VEd = applied punching force
β is a factor that deals with the eccentricity of the applied loads. Its value is defined in clause 6.4.3 of BS EN 1992-1-1. However, for structures where the lateral stability does not rely on the frame action between the slab and columns and in which adjacent spans do not differ in length by more than 25% figure 4 may be used.
uo= column perimeter. Its values are defined as:
- For interior column uo= 2(h+b)
- For edge column uo= b + 3d ≤ h + 2b
- For corner column uo=3d ≤ h + 2b
Haven verified that the punching shear stress is less than the maximum concrete shear strength, proceed to punch verification at the basic control perimeter.
Step 2: Punching Shear Verification at the Basic Control Perimeter
At the basic control perimeter, if the punching shear stress is less than the concrete shear strength, shear reinforcement is not required and need not be designed for. However, if the shear stress exceeds the concrete shear strength punching shear reinforcement must be provided in the slabs. In addition to this, the U.K National Annex requires that the punching shear stress must be less than twice the concrete shear strength, else the element must be resized.
- vEd = applied punching shear stress
- vRd, = concrete shear strength
β & dmin, VEd are as defined in the preceding section.
u1= basic control. Its values are defined in figures 2 and 3
Where ply and plz = the mean ratios of reinforcement in each direction over a width equal to the column dimension plus 3d on each side.
Step 3: Punching Shear Reinforcement
If punching shear exceeds the concrete shear strength, shear reinforcement is provided accordingly.
- Asw= area of vertical links required in slab
- vEd=punching shear stress
v Rd,c=concrete shear strength
- u1=basic control perimeter.
- sr=radial spacing of vertical links
- fywd= effective design strength of the punching shear reinforcement.
After obtaining the area of punching shear reinforcement, we must determine at what point, punching reinforcement is no longer required. This is defined as the outer perimeter
Step 4: Detailing Requirements
Haven provided the punching reinforcement, the detailing checks involves verifying the minimum area of vertical links and checking the spacing of bars. The minimum area of a vertical link is defined as
Finally, the following rules must be kept in mind as regards to spacing when detailing the slab for punching reinforcement
- There should be at least two perimeters of shear links
- The radial spacing of the links should not exceed 0.75d:
- The tangential spacing of the links should not exceed 1.5d within 2d of the column face
- The tangential spacing of the links should not exceed 2d for any other perimeter
- The distance between the face of the column and the nearest shear reinforcement should be less than 0.5d.
Design the shear reinforcement around the interior column of a flat slab 275mm thick and reinforced with T16 bars @ 125 mm centres in both directions. The interior columns are 400mm x 400mm thick and spaced at 7.5m centres in both directions. The design load on the slab is 20.5kN/m2. Use C25/30mpa concrete and steel bars with 460mpa yield strength.
Step 1: Punching Verification at Column Face
Step 2: Punching Verification at the Basic Control Perimeter
Since the punching shear stress is greater than concrete shear strength, punching reinforcement is required in the slab.
Step 3: Punching Shear Reinforcement.
The radius of the of the point at which punching shear reinforcement is no longer required can be evaluated using the same expression for the control perimeter as
Therefore, the position of outer perimeter of reinforcement from column face is
Step 4: Detailing requirements
The Layout of the punching reinforcement is shown as figure 5
