In view of the fact that the practising design engineer is on occasion faced with conflicting data and recommendations regarding the evaluation of punching shear capacity of reinforced concrete slabs, a fairly extensive laboratory test programme has been undertaken in this field. The test results have generally been compared with a suitable selection of current code approaches, principally through the use of the examination of certain structural case studies. The research findings are summarized diagrammatically and some design recommendations are proposed.
