An analytical method is presented for predicting the strength of a corner column-slab connection in a flat plate structure subjected to bending moment or combined bending and axial load through the column stubs. It takes into account the column side to the effective slab depth ratio, r/d, concrete and steel properties, steel configuration near the column-slab interface, and the moment to shear ratio, γ. The validity of the method was checked against the available test data and excellent correlation was obtained. Recommendations for its application and a numerical example are given.
