Influence of moment redistribution and compressive membrane action on punching strength of flat slabs

  • Jürgen Einpaul, Miguel Ruiz, Aurelio Muttoni
  • Published 2015


The punching shear strength of interior column connections of flat slabs has traditionally been investigated with isolated test specimens subjected exclusively to hogging bending moments. However, the behavior of such specimens is different from that of actual flat slabs, as the potentially beneficial phenomena of moment redistribution between hogging and… (More)
