Punching shear strength of flat slab corner column connections. Part 2. Fibre-reinforced concrete connections P. Desayi, BE, MTech, PhD, DSc and H. K. Seshadri s This paper gives the details of the studies undertaken to examine the strength and behaviour of fibre-reinforced concrete corner column connections in flat slabs. Tests have been conducted on 16 specimens with var ying reinforcement ratio, moment/shear ratio (load eccentricity) and volume fraction of fibres. A quasi-empirical method has been proposed for computing the punching shear strength...
