Abstract:
The paper describes an analytical and experimental investigation of the elastic behavior of flat slabs with edge beams. The analytical study is based on the finite element method and the solutions are compared with measurements on model perspex plates. Two types of slab/edge beam configurations are considered: Type 1: slab and beams with coincident centroidal axes; Type 2: slab and beams with non-coincident centroidal axes
