Design for Punching Shear Strength with ACI 318-95
by Amin Ghali and Sami Megally
Brittle punching failure of flat plates can occur due to the transfer of shearing forces and unbalanced moments between slabs and columns. Design of connections of columns to flat plates to insure safety against punching failure is presented. This paper covers the design procedure in most practical situations, including interior, edge, and corner columns; prestressed and nonprestressed slabs; slabs with openings; and slabs with shear reinforcement. The ACI 318-95 Building Code requirements are adhered to where applicable. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the design procedure. Seismic design considerations are not discussed in this paper.

INTRODUCTION The punching shear resistance of concrete flat plates frequently needs to be increased by the provision of drop panels or by shear reinforcement. The latter solution is more acceptable architecturally, and is often more economical. This paper gives the details of punching shear design of flat plates without drop panels, with or without shear reinforcement. Requirements of the ACI 318-951 Building Code for design of slabs against punching are reviewed. The design steps are presented, adhering to the code requirements when they apply. Most conditions that occur in practice are considered for slabs with or without prestressing, including slabs with openings in the column vicinity. Interior, edge, and corner column-slab connections subjected to shear and moment transfer are considered. The design steps are demonstrated by computed examples. This paper presents a complete design procedure for punching shear. Reference is made to an available computer program that can be used for the design. When drop panels are used, the design procedure for flat plates applies with an additional provision that is also discussed. The ACI 318-951 Building Code allows the use of shear heads, in the form of steel I- or channel-shaped sections, as shear reinforcement in slabs. Because at present this type is rarely used, it will not be discussed here. The two most common types of shear reinforcement are shown in Fig. 1. To save space in this paper, the arrangements of the reinforcement with the two types are shown in a single top view in Fig. 1(a). Fig. 1(b) and (c) are a pictorial view and a cross section showing, respectively, details of conventional stirrups and stud shear reinforcement (SSR). The vertical legs of the stirrups or the stems of the studs intersect the shear cracks and prevent their widening (Fig. 2). Because the intersection can occur at any section of the stirrup leg or the stud stem, the leg or the stem should be as long as possible and must be anchored as closely as possible to the top and bottom surfaces of the slab (observing the cover requirements for corrosion and fire protection). Effective anchorage is essential to develop the yield strength of the shear reinforcement of both types. With stirrups ACI Structural Journal/July-August 1999
