Column Punching Shear Checks (BS8110 & EC 2)


The nature of design code requirements tends to dictate that punching shear checks cannot be safe and fully automated in batch runs. For this reason, ProtaStructure provides an interactive design tool for punching shear checks, which you need to use carefully on one column, or a group of similar columns at a time to establish the correct design settings. This document explains the process of column punching shear checks through numerical examples based on British Code and Eurocode regulations.
