Column Punching Shear Checks to BS 8110 and Eurocode 2
The nature of the design code requirements tend to dictate that punching shear checks cannot be safely & fully automated in batch runs. For this reason, ProtaStructure’s punching shear check is an interactive design tool, you need to use it carefully on one column, or a group of similar column(s) at a time to review/establish the correct design settings. Having done so re-checking can be carried out in a more automatic fashion.
In this document, we will show what this check can do for you for BS8110 & Eurocode 2. We will also illustrate the limitations of which you need to be aware.
