Abstract:
The ductility and the strength of flat plate connections with their supporting columns are influenced by the concrete strength, the thickness of the slab and the shear and the flexural reinforcements. The present paper concentrates on the important effect of flexural reinforcement in the presence or the absence of shear reinforcement.
