The App is a learning tool for those of you interested in punching shear in Reinforced Concrete flat slabs. The app contains an implementation of Critical Shear Crack Theory (CSCT) for punching shear in reinforced concrete flat slabs based on: Muttoni, Aurelio. "Punching shear strength of reinforced concrete slabs without transverse reinforcement." ACI structural Journal, 4 (2008): 440-450.
The app currently covers the theoretical case of an axisymmetric circular slab. The user can specify the geometry and reinforcement of the slab. An interactive plot is displayed subsequently showing an analytical load - rotation curve as well as the failure criterion based on CSCT. Punching shear failure occurs at the intersection of the two curves.
* Punching Shear CSCT download link provides freeware version of the software.
The stand-alone Windows program Phaethon with user’s interface written in C++ offers analysis of shear - critical reinforced concrete columns to its user both for rectangular but also for circular reinforced concrete columns.
SO-Shear is aimed at the evaluation of direct shear tests. It has a user-friendly interface and lots of smart capabilities are implemented.
LRFDShear Computes ultimate capacity of reinforced/prestressed concrete members subjected to combined action of shear, flexure, torsion and axial forces.
cColumn formerly known as RcSections is a powerful 32-bit Windows program designed specifically for structural engineers to perform axial-flexural analysis and design of concrete columns as well as beams and shear walls according to ACI 318-11/08/05/02 and ACI 318-99.
Calculates shear capacity and confinement reinforcement of circular and oblong shape reinforced concrete columns.
