Title: Substructure Modeling of Two-Way Slab Systems
Author(s): M. Hoit, F. Fagundo, and t. Hamilton
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 25-46
Keywords: beam-column frame; computer programs; connections; stiffness; framing systems; lateral pressure; loads (forces); structural analysis; moments; two-way slabs; Structural Research
Abstract:A substructuring technique to analyze equivalent frames according to ACI 318-83 is presented. A more consistent implementation of the equivalent frame method is formulated. The width of the column strip and the percentage of torsional stiffness required are studied. A program that will analyze a building system subjected to gravity as well as lateral loads is developed.
