Title: Flat Plate Analysis of Olentangy River Dormitories

Abstract:Describes the design of flat plate floor slabs for two 24-story dormitories by model analysis using a scale acrylic plastic model of a typical slab with supporting columns and walls, loaded with negative air pressure. Biaxial strains were measured and converted to stresses using the measured value for the modulus of elasticity and Poisson’s ratio. Distribution of the stresses was analyzed and stresses at critical sections were converted to moments from which the required reinforcement was determined. Discusses some details of reinforcing and thermal movement of 20-story high concrete walls.
