Abstract

Punching shear in concrete slabs is a serious problem in certain structural systems, such as ﬂat slabs. Current analysis

is based either on empirical and simpliﬁed analytical techniques or on theoretical models, mainly based on the theory of

plasticity. This paper presents a new model, based on rigid post-fractured behavior, utilizing the post fracture properties

of concrete at the rough crack interfaces that are developed. The model predicts the force—displacement resistance during

punching, the stress distributions along the cracked interfaces, as well as the shape of the punched concrete plug.

Comparison of the model predictions with various test data shows good correspondence. 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd.

1. Introduction

Common practice in evaluating the punching strength of concrete slabs follows the requirements

appearing in building design codes. Many design codes of diﬀerent countries adopt an empirical

approach by deﬁning a control surface and a design strength, isolating a free body which is

bounded by the control surface, and requiring that the average shear stress resulting from

equilibrium considerations should not exceed the design strength.

Indeed this is the most simple and practice-oriented approach; however, it is an oversimpliﬁed

empirical technique in which the failure surface is not at all similar to failure surfaces obtained in

many tests and an average shear stress does not represent the stresses developed along the failure

surface. This method, although commonly used, has nothing to do with the real punching

phenomenon [1].

Theoretical works aiming towards equilibriumanalysis of the wedge which is sheared oﬀ the slab

have been proposed by Braestrup and Nielsen [2] and later by Jiang and Shen [3], through

application of the theory of plasticity. Their models assume that the punched out solid of

revolution, and the remaining part of the slab are rigid, and they are interconnected by a plastic

zone of small thickness, having the shape of the failure surface. The model uses the compressive and

tensile strengths of concrete to calculate through limit equilibrium the punching strength as well as

the stresses along the failure surface. The shape of the failure surface is found from a minimum

punching force consideration.

In this paper a new model is presented to simulate the punching shear problem by using

a rigid-post-fractured behavior, opposed to the rigid-plastic behavior which had been assumed in

the previous work [2, 3].

The model uses post fracture properties of concrete and considers both equilibrium and

kinematics of the system. Therefore, it may predict the force—displacement resistance curve and not

only the ultimate punching force, as well as the shape of the failure surface, and the displacement

dependent stress distributions along the failure surface.

2. The proposed model

2.1. General description

Consider an axi-symmetric slab being connected to an axi-symmetric circular column which is

subjected to an axial force. The slab is simply supported along its circumference (Fig. 1). The

proposed model considers the ﬁnal failure stage of the column—slab system and assumes that the

system’s resistance at this stage is concentrated along the failure surface.

The model is based on post-cracking mechanics of concrete and assumes that

1. A single cracked surface already exists in the slab. The cracked surface is continuous and

starts along the column circumference. The surface geometry may be represented by the

unknown function r(x) (Fig. 2).

Fig. 1. Layout of the problem.

2. Concrete is ideally rigid and the cracked surface subdivides the slab into two rigid bodies, the

punched wedge and the outer slab.

3. The contribution of reinforcement is disregarded.

4. The deformation and the accompanied resistance are concentrated along the cracked surface.

5. The cracked failure surface is rough and a mechanism of aggregate interlock is developed.

Pushing the column against the slab is enabled by applying a controlled displacement. The axial

displacement u, which is the relative displacement between the two rigid bodies, may be resolved at

each point of the cracked surface, into two displacement components: a displacement component

w normal to the surface at that point and a tangential displacement component (Fig. 2). The ﬁrst

component increases the crack width at that point and the second component produces shear. The

rough crack surface geometry is responsible for dilation, or crack opening, accompanying shear

displacement. When dilation is restrained to some extent, compressive stresses are developed

normal to the cracked surface. Therefore two stress components are considered on the cracked

surface: a shear stress which produces tangential forces acting along the generatrix, and a normal

compressive stress (Fig. 3) . When the punching concrete element is isolated as a free body, the force

components distributed along its outer surface may be integrated to yield the magnitude of the

punching force P, which maintains equilibrium at the given axial displacement.

The surface shape shown in Figs 2 and 3 is characterized by an increasing angle with the

coordinate x, as has been observed in many tests [2, 4—7], and may be denoted as a convex surface.

The proposed model does not assume a priori the surface shape; however, the model’s basic

assumptions may be helpful in getting a qualitative explanation to this shape. With increasing the

angle with the coordinate x, the incremental surface area projection AB (Fig. 3) increases and the

stresses will decrease with x, because a relatively large crack opening accompanies a rather small

shear displacement, whereas in the other case, where the angle decreases with the coordinate x, the

incremental surface area projection AB (Fig. 3) decreases and the stresses increase, because a rather

small crack opening displacement accompanies a rather large shear displacement. It should be

noted that the incremental area increases with the coordinate x because it depends on the

increasing radius r(x), as shown in Fig. 2. Therefore in the latter case discussed above, increasing

stresses are incorporated with increasing the surface area thus leading to higher resistance than in

the ﬁrst case. The ﬁrst case of the convex surface will yield the smaller resistance and is more likely

to be developed.

3. Stresses in a sheared rough crack

Before going into the formulation of the overall resistance to punching, the constitutive

relationships for an inﬁnitesimal cracked surface should be deﬁned. Force—displacement or

stress—displacement relationships are sought to describe the variation of tangential and normal

forces acting on the cracked surface as a function of the crack displacement.

As a result of a study which has been carried out by the authors, in which available test data as

well as expressions to calculate the stresses developed across a crack have been reviewed, it has

been found that a rather simple set of expressions may be suggested.

The expressions are based on test data which had been presented by Reinhardt and Walraven

[8] and they are as follows.

These expressions, which are shown in Fig. 4, are in good correspondence with test data [8]. The

linear stress—displacement relationships have been chosen for simplicity, otherwise the original

nonlinear relationships [8] could have been adopted. The original expressions have a theoretical

background and are tuned to ﬁt the experimental results by choosing appropriate constants. It

should be stated that these stress—displacement relationships refer to certain mixes of concrete and

diﬀerent coeﬃcients should be determined for diﬀerent mixes, however the general approach as

well as the character of the diﬀerent expressions remain the same.

6 D.Z. Yankelevsky, O. Leibowitz / International Journal of Mechanical Sciences 41 (1999) 1—15

Since Eqns (1)—(8) are empirical, they should be subjected to the experimental program limita-

tions, as follows:

1. Shear displacement is less than 2 mm.

2. Crack width is narrower than 2 mm, and wider than 0.03 mm. The minimum crack width,

which had been observed experimentally, agrees well with the requirement that the shear

stiﬀness should not be larger than the elastic value. The limitations for the stresses ranges are

detailed in Eqns (1), (2), (5) and (6).

4. The punching force

In this section the expressions to predict the magnitude of the punching force are derived. The

tangential forces along the cracked surface contribute to an increase in the resistance and the

compressive normal forces act to decrease the resistance.

5. Capabilities of the proposed model

Although the proposed model deals with the ﬁnal stage of resistance after having a cracked

surface fully developed, it includes equilibrium, kinematic and constitutive equations. As such it

may calculate the following:

1. Shear and normal stresses along the cracked surface and their distribution.

2. Variation of these stresses with the axial displacement.

3. Variation of the resisting force, as a function of the increasing displacement.

4. Prediction of the ultimate punching force.

6. Shape of the sliding surface

The surface along which the two rigid parts of the slab slide relatively to each other, is described

by the function r(x), as shown in Fig. 3. Once this function is known, calculations of stresses and the

integrated force may be carried out. However, this shape is not known and it will be determined in

this section.

The surface may be determined by its smaller diameter d (which equals to the column diameter)

and the larger diameter D on the other side of the slab, or alternatively by the angle of the conical

surface (Fig. 2). For a given angle , or known end points of the surface, one may determine the

surface shape which yields minimum resistance.

It can be done using variational calculus by solving the function r(x) for which the force

P reaches a minimum value. The functional of Eqn (14) is

F(x, r, r )"(!r ) r(x). (17)

Substituting Eqns (2), (5), (15) and (16) into Eqn (17) yields the nonlinear expression of the

functional F(x, r, r ), in which u is an independent variable operation on Eqn (14) with Euler’s

equation:

d

will yield a nonlinear diﬀerential equation, the solution of which is the equation of the failure

surface which satisﬁes the extremum requirement. Following this procedure and substituting the

above expressions yields a rather complex equation which should be solved numerically.

Alternatively, in order to obtain an analytical expression for the failure surface, it has been

assumed that the surface shape may be presented by a second-order polynomial, in which two

constants are determined by the boundary conditions, and the third constant is a variable to be

found from the condition that it should yield a minimum punching force. Figure 5 shows a speciﬁc

example for the following data: Plate thickness equals 10.0 cm, column diameter is 15.0 cm, and

concrete compressive strength is 37.6 Nmm`. The curves shown in Fig. 5 are piecewise approxi-

mation to the smooth surface geometry.

Several surface geometries for "60° are shown in Fig. 5, in the vicinity of curve number 5,

which has been found to yield a minimum punching force. A similar procedure had been followed

with a third order polynomial and only minor diﬀerences were observed. For example, the

magnitude of the punching force obtained from a third-order polynomial, was by 0.4% smaller

than the value obtained using the minimum second order polynomial. It may be concluded that

a second order polynomial is appropriate to represent the shape of the surface having minimum

resistance. The value of itself may be predetermined within the range of 58°—65°, as many test

data shown [5—7].

values of force—displacement relationship and stress distributions are calculated as well. This

program is used in this section to perform comparisons with available test data.

7.1. The punching force

To compare the predictions of the present model, various plates have been selected from test

data performed by Yitzhaki [7] and Elstner and Hognestad [5]. The plates were chosen to

represent a wide range of steel reinforcement ratios, of concrete qualities and column diameter to

plate thickness ratios.

The calculated results are shown in Table 1. A common angle has been assumed for all the

predictions being equal to 60°. Column 5 in Table 1 presents the ratio of the predicted to the

measured ultimate punching force, and good predictions are observed. Column 6 shows the value

of which yields a perfect ﬁt. It may be seen that the variations around 60° depend on the plate

parameters, which are detailed in columns 2—4 in Table 1: The angle increases with

concrete strength for constant column diameter d to plate thickness H ratio and for given

reinforcement ratios. A variable value of which depends on these parameters and ranges between

58° and 65° will yield even better predictions.

7.2. Force—displacement relationship

The model is capable of calculating the force (in metric tonne)—displacement (in mm) relationship

for a given plate. Figure 6 shows the calculated curve for the same speciﬁed data of the plate which

has been discussed earlier. The nonlinear ascending branch of the force—displacement relationship,

and the softening descending branch which follows, are clearly shown.

There is only limited measured data with respect to the force—displacement relationship in

a punching shear process. In the following, calculations of the force—displacement relationships for

several plates which had been tested by Bazant and Zao [1], are compared with his test results.

Currently there is no theoretical model which may yield predictions of a force—displacement

relationship for the problem under discussion.

In the tests performed by Bazant and Zao [4], three plate thicknesses H were tested: 25.4,

50.8 and 101.6 mm, with column diameter D"H. In these tests the following experimental

characteristics were observed:

— The load is increasing to a peak value and a softening branch then follows.

— The thicker the plate is, the steeper the ascending curve becomes.

Figure 7 shows the predicted force—displacement curves and major observations are the following:

— The ascending curve is steeper for thicker plates, similar to the experimental observation.

— There is good agreement between the predicted and measured peak punching force, as shown

in Table 2. The diﬀerences do not exceed 5%.

Fig. 9. Predicted normal stress distribution along the slab height for several displacements º (mm).

— There is a signiﬁcant diﬀerence between the predicted and measured displacements corre-

sponding to the same force (see Table 2).

Observation of the damaged plates show a crack pattern which indicates bending deformation.

This may explain the larger deformations measured in the tests [1], which result from axial

displacement and bending deformation.

7.3. Stress distribution

The present model provides the shear and normal stress distributions along the failure surface

for any displacement u. Typical stress distributions for diﬀerent displacement values are shown in

Figs 8 and 9. The calculations have been carried out for the same plate for which the data have been

presented earlier. It is clearly shown that higher stresses are developed at smaller angles.

8. Eﬀects of tensile resistance and precracking behavior

The present model focuses on the post fracture behavior of two parts of the slab which are

a priori completely separated by a rough crack surface. The two parts are assumed to be rigid and

under that assumption the relative displacement between the parts starts from zero. The punching

force in the present model is also developed upon increasing the displacement and therefore is

developed from zero as well. However, the earlier process of the crack surface development

deserves some attention. It may be considered as a preparatory stage to the relative displacement

discussed above, where a punching low magnitude load is applied to produce the cracked surface,

D.Z. Yankelevsky, O. Leibowitz / International Journal of Mechanical Sciences 41 (1999) 1—15 13

and the corresponding deformations are developed in the slab. These deformations may be

considered rather small, compared to the relative displacement which is considered later on. Upon

the development of the full cracked surface the load magnitude is decreasing and that stage is the

starting point of the proposed model. If the earlier, non-rigid phase would have been taken into

account, in would aﬀect some increase in displacement, since the rough crack resistance is activated

at a non-zero displacement, which is assumed to be small compared to the following displacements.

The resisting force would then have a low-magnitude increase (to produce cracking) followed by

some decrease, and the major part of the post-cracked slab resistance would follow the

force—displacement relationship, proposed by the present model.

If tensile stresses would have been incorporated in the model it is very likely that the model

would have yielded a value for the largest diameter D, or the corresponding angle (Fig. 2), for

which a minimum value of the peak punching force is obtained. At larger angles the surface area

increases and the tensile force would increase the punching force. In the present model, however,

the peak punching force decreases with an increasing angle . Disregarding tensile stresses the

proper value of the angle should be assumed a priori.

9. Summary and conclusions

A new model is presented, to analyze the punching shear failure of concrete slabs. It is assumed

that cracks, which are the potential failure surfaces, are already developed and the slab resistance is

concentrated along these failure surfaces. The cracks are rough and aggregate interlock mechanism

is developed. Combining equilibrium, kinematic and constitutive equations provides a tool to

predict force—displacement relationship of the punching process, as well as stress distributions

along the failure surface as a function of the displacement. When the largest diameter of the

punched wedge is known (the smallest diameter equals the column diameter), the shape of the

failure surface is found to yield a minimum value of the peak punching force.

It has been shown that an average angle of 60° yields good results for a wide range of parameters

(reinforcement ratio, concrete strength and diameter to thickness ratio). Better predictions may be

obtained if a reﬁned choice of the angle is taken, depending on the values of these parameters.
