Topic: Punching failure

Dear all,

I am modeling flat slab by Atena 3D, i have simple question

1- How to know that the failure was due to punching , is this by crack shape and direction or measured stress or what? What is the criteria ? And how to get the punching failure from the program ?

Plz i am waiting for your answer, thank you :)

Re: Punching failure


the best way is according the crack pattern and deformation shape.
