Some studies on the ultimate load analysis of slab-beam floor system

The present work can be divided into two parts namely a) study of the development of compressive membrane forces in the post-yield stage of horizontally restrained reinforced concrete slabs encountered in slab-beam floor system and evaluation of the enhanced capacity of the slab panel due to this membrane force under varying degrees of edge-restraints, b) presenting a numerical method for obtaining lower-bound to the collapse load of an isolated slab-beam panel (with T-beam action) in the spirit of classical limit analysis. In Chapter1, an introduction to the development of membrane action in the slab-beam floor system in the post-yield stage is given and its importance in the ultimate load analysis of such system is discussed. The chapter also discusses briefly how the present work arises form the available literature on this subject and gives a summary of the works attempted here. More Info
