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.
