Procedure for determining punching shear capacity for pad foundations

START

Determine value of factor ¡3 ¡3 =1.0 when applied moment is zero; refer to Expressions (6.38) to (6.42) from BS EN 1992-1-1 for other cases)

Determine value of vEd,max (design shear stress at face of column) from: VEd,max = ß(VEd - PVM) (from Exp. (6.38)) (uod.ft)

where u0 is perimeter of column (see Clause 6.4.5 for columns at base edges) deff = (dy + dz)/2 where dy and dz are the effective depths in orthogonal directions

 Determine value of VRd,max (refer to Table 7)

Determine value of vEd, (design shear stress) from:

Determine value of vEd, (design shear stress) from:

where u1 is length of control perimeter (refer to Figure 5). For eccentrically loaded bases, refer to Exp. (6.51). The control perimeter will have to be found through iteration; it will usually be between d and 2d

Determine concrete punching shear capacity vr (without shear reinforcement) from 2dvRd,c/a (Refer to Table 6 for VRd,c)

Determine concrete punching shear capacity vr (without shear reinforcement) from 2dvRd,c/a (Refer to Table 6 for VRd,c)

Either increase main steel, or provide punching shear reinforcement required.

(Not recommended for foundations.)

No shear reinforcement required. Check complete.
