Abstract:

The relationship between limit analysis and yield-line analysis is investigated. Attention is restricted to simply-supported, isotropic slabs subjected to single point loadings. It is found that conventional yield-line analyses quite often give substantial over-estimates of the carrying capacity. A general method is formulated for finding the yield-point load, and various examples are considered. Author
