In this paper there are results of a punching shear test of slab samples, which were modeling post-tensioned reinforced concrete floor slabs when they are punched by columns. Geometrical dimensions of slab samples and properties of used materials are listed as well. There were 4 series of samples which differed to each other by level of prestress. Load have been applied through stamps of several types, which have allowed to research different positions of tensioned reinforcement relatively to the punching pyramid. Obtained results are discussed. Recommendations, which compliance may allow to obtain positive effect in ultimate punching shear loads for unbonded post-tensioned slabs are given.
