Edge-Column Connections in Flat-Slab Construction

Six full-scale tests on reinforced concrete flat-slab to edge-column connections are described. The strength of the specimens compared well with predictions based on BS 8110. Nevertheless, it is suggested that the shear stresses within the joint region of the column should also be considered. D.E. Parker and P.J.M. Bullman
