Abstract:
The method consists in basing the distribution of total panel moments between column and middle strips on the rectangularity of the panel in a manner analogous to that followed in the design of two-way slabs. By this procedure, in long, narrow panels, the two-way plate action effects disappear and the slab approaches a one-way slab. Conversely, in more nearly square panels, the results obtained conformed closely to the empirical design method.
