A general method for elastic analysis of plates under transverse loads is described. Complex loading and support conditions, as in flat slab and Rat plate structures, may be readily handled and are considered in particular. The method is suitable for both accurate analysis and design, and typical cases including concentrated loads, live loads on alternate panels, irregular supports, dis- continuities, and settlement are discussed. The basis of the method was outlined in a previous paper, together with its application to regularly loaded internal panels of a flat slab structure.
