Punching shear often controls the required slab thickness or column size of flatplate slabs. This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation of the punching shear strength of post-tensioned concrete slabs with rectangular and L-shaped columns. The test results are compared with ACI equations for punching shear strength. An analysis accounting for the cracking at the critical sections is also presented which provided a better prediction of the punching shear strength. Good correlations between what was predicted and the actual experimental results have been achieved.
