Evaluation of punching shear capacity of two-way RC slabs without transverse reinforcement according to different provisions
Currently, RC flat slabs are being used commonly because of their advantages. Punching shear failure is one of the governing failure modes of RC flat slabs without column capital and drop panels. In this paper, the provisions for predicting the punching shear capacity of two-way reinforced concrete (RC) flat slabs without shear reinforcement including ACI 318-19, Eurocode 2 and TCVN 5574:2018 provisions are reviewed by mean of considering the influences of the main parameters (effective depth, compressive strength of concrete, loaded area, reinforcement ratio). A total of 169 test results collected from the literature were used to compare with the provisions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of applicability of predicting the punching shear capacity of two-way RC flat slabs according to these provisions. The comparison results indicated that the Eurocode 2 provision provides the most accurate prediction of punching shear capacity of two-way RC flat slabs.
