Physical punching shear models such as the Critical Shear Crack Theory (CSCT), which is the basis of Model Code 2010 (MC 2010), describe generally the punching strength as a function of the slab deformation. Thus, the prediction of an accurate load-deformation curve is essential for the prediction of the punching strength as well as the deformation capacity of flat slabs. In the vicinity of columns, the flexural response of flat slabs depends not only on the flexural moments but also on the… CONTINUE READING
