Abstract: Especially in case of shear or punching-shear failures the connection of concrete and steel elements influence the global behaviour of failure loads. In reinforced concrete structures, to exploit the material properties, shear elements are essential to connect the tension zone with the compression zone to increase the bending and shear capacity.
Instead of using shear hooks or dowels a new shear and punching shear reinforcement working with concrete dowels will be presented. The local failure mechanism of concrete dowels to prevent the shear failure in flat slabs will be explained.
