Design and check punching shear

Once you have created your punching check items you can proceed to design or check them. You can design/check individually, by floor, or for the whole model, (although some of the methods described below are only available when working to the Eurocode or ACI regional code).

Note: As the checks are dependent on using the correct levels of slab reinforcement (typically provided by patch reinforcement), you should only design or check punching shear after you have designed the slabs and designed the patches at the check locations.
