Abstract:
Irregular shaped two-way concrete slabs cannot be designed by any method suggested in ACI 318-71. For irregular shaped panel, designers use the finite difference method of analysis, checking solution with finite element method. paper describes how analyses were made, shows respective results to be fairly close in agreement
