Results of punching shear test of 15 reinforced concrete specimens of a new type of test specimen that simulates continuous two-way construction are reported. Conclusions for these tests are that: (1) Circular columns permit development of higher shear strength than square columns of equal periphery; (2) increasing moment reinforcing results in slight shear strength increase; (3) none of the empirical strength equations extant are reliable; and (4) conventional footing type test specimens are adequate for parameter studies.
