  • Complete and reasonable presetting of input parameters
  • Punching shear design on columns, wall ends, and wall corners
  • Optional arrangement of an enlarged column head
  • Automatic recognition of the position of the punching node from the RFEM model
  • Detection of curves or splines as boundary of the control perimeter
  • Automatic consideration of all slab openings defined on the RFEM model
  • Structure and graphical display of the control perimeter before calculation starts
  • Qualitative determination of punching shear reinforcement
  • Optional design with unsmoothed shear stress along the control perimeter that corresponds to the actual shear stress distribution on the FE model
  • Determination of the load increment factor β by full plastic shear distribution as constant factors according to EN 1992‑1‑1, Chap. 6.4.3 (3), based on EN 1992‑1‑1, Fig. 6.21N or by user‑defined specification
  • Integration of design software by the Halfen shear reinforcement rails producer
  • Numerical and graphical display of results (3D, 2D, and in sections)
