Abstract:An anlytical method is presented to find the stresses in flat plates near exterior columns. The method is based on the theory of elastic plastes and it takes the boundary condiontion of the free edge into account. The resulting values for several edge into account. The resulting values for several examples are compared with those obtained by other analysis methods. Good agreement can be realized with more elaborate methods based on application of the suggested approach. Results from testing a specimen representing an exterior column are compared with the analytical results. The agreement is satisfactory.
