The punching shear analysis is directly linked to any joints that has been defined as a slab support of type column in the concrete tab of a joint properties. By defining the geometrical properties of a slab supporting joint, the program will determine the shear perimeter around the support.

Support properties can be defined or edited manually or automatically calculated by using the Recalculate slab supports function for the associated slab perimeter. When openings are close to the punching zone, they are considered in the effective punching perimeter.
