Punching shear reinforcement design


The program now automatically designs punching shear reinforcement. In previous versions, the critical punching shear perimeter was only generated for columns or column groups that were not in contact with beams. During the design process, the program regenerates and automatically checks the critical punching shear sections. The design process can be executed from the Punching shear menu (affects only the selected floor) or from “Project > Design” (affects the selected plan or all plans).

The design of all the punching shear reinforcement can be carried out using the forces of the global analytical model or those of the analytical model defined for the floor plan.

Design options

The punching shear reinforcement can be designed using shear studs or stirrups. The type of reinforcement can be selected before the design process begins in “General data > Design options > Punching shear”.
