A design concept that eliminates the punching failure mode of flat plates is verified by testing, and design recommendations are given. Only standard reinforced is used, which is so easy to fabricate and rapid to install that the solution should be suitable as standard practice ordinary flat plates as well as for such extremes applications as air-raid shelters. The system provides excellent safely against progressive collapse of flat plate buildings, a basic requirements that seems to be overlooked in many current concrete codes. The provisions of the ACI Code 318-95 for two-way shear capacity of slabs are found unsafe for critical sections outside shear reinforcement and presumably also around large columns.
