Title: Prismatic Folded Plates-A Simplified Procedure of Analysis
Author(s): Eliahu Traum
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1285-1304
Abstract:A simplified, yet exact procedure for the analysis of prismatic folded plates is presented. The ridges are first considered as unyielding supports for the calculation of all transverse moments in the slab. Then they are subjected to unknown loads which constitute the true slab reactions, taking into account the settlement of the ridges. One single mo-ment distribution is sufficient to express the relationship between those reactions. A set of linear simultaneous equations yields their exact values. The method is illustrated by a numerical example.
