Abstract:

The is a study aimed at providing guidance for the use of finite element analysis programs. As part of the Computer-Aided Structural Engineering CASE Committee study, it focuses on techniques for concrete flat slabs. With a purpose of developing criteria for finite element analysis of flat slab floors, this report has two objectives. To compare methods for the most acceptable yield and to apply these guidelines to the active design problem requires that this report include element selection, initial assumptions, comparisons of verification study, results, discussion of results, conclusions, and recommendations using the finite element methods. A powerhouse erection bay floor slab was selected for the problem solutions, with the GTSTRUDL programs IPBQQ element the only one suited to this problem. Keywords Computer-aided design, Concrete slabs, Flooring, Concrete, Finite element method.
