Desayi, P and Seshadri, HK (1997) Punching shear strength of flat slab corner column connections .2. Fibre-reinforced concrete connections. In: Structures and Buildings, 122 (1). pp. 21-26.Full text not available from this repository.
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 varying 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. The method has also been extended to fibre-reinforced concrete interior column connections, tests on which are available in the literature. The test results have been compared with the strength predicted by the proposed method for corner column as well as interior column connections and a satisfactory agreement noticed.
