Abstract:An investigation of the behavior and strength of thin wall, ribbed beam-panels is reported. Tests were conducted on six beam-panels with variable tensile flexural reinforcement, simply supported and subjected to midspan or third-point loading. Test results were compared with results using the finite element method and simplified formulas developed for deep beams.
