Punching Shear Reinforcement Design Program

Free software is available from Ancon that simplifies the design of punching shear reinforcement.

Ancon Shearfix is installed within a concrete slab to reinforce column heads against punching shear. Its use negates the need for any localised thickening of the slab with features such as downstand beams or enlarged column heads. Shearfix consists of double-headed steel studs welded to flat rails.

Ancon’s design program will calculate the optimum stud centres and rail layout. Unique to the Ancon program, designers are able to generate both an orthogonal and a radial rail layout, ensuring specification of the most cost-effective solution.
