Title: Slab Effective Width for Eqivalent Frame Analysis
Author(s): David A. Pecknold
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 135-137
Keywords: beams (supports);columns (supports);concrete slabs;elastic analysis; frames; loads (forces);reinforced concrete;statistical analysis;stiffness;structural analysis.
Abstract:In the priliminary analysis of slab-column structural systems subjected to lateral loads, it is often assumed that an "effective width" of slab acts as a beam. An expression for the effective width of a typical interior panel is obtained and useful results are given for a wide range of slab aspect ratios and column sizes.
