Effect of mid-thickness rebar mesh on the behavior and punching shear strength of interior slab–column connection

Punching shear failure is a major problem encountered in the design of reinforced concrete flat plates. The utilization of shear reinforcement via shear studs or other means has become a choice for improving the punching shear capacity. In this study, a new alternative of reinforcement, the introduc...
