    A shear punching test series is being carried out at VTT by using as a target a two way simply supported concrete plate with a span of 2. m and a thickness of 25. cm. The mass of the impacting stainless steel missile-type projectile is 50. kg. The capabilities of different types of calculation methods in assessing local shear deformation and possible shear punching cone formation are studied. Numerical solutions are compared with experimental results of test called X3.
