Fellow engineers,


        I got four(4) copies of this.  Did others have the same experience?

Hi all,

Can anyone tell  the reason behind the codal provision of taking the critical section for failure of foundation in shear at a distance of d/2( d=thickness of foundation slab) from the face of column for punching shear and at distance of d in case of one way shear.


Thanks & Regards.
