Abstract

Although in the analysis of building slabs the eccentricities of the beams play a very important role in the results of stresses, strains and displacements they are not usually considered in the practice of building slab analysis. In order to evaluated the error when these eccentricities are not considered an analytical and numerical study of the interaction of beams and plates in bending is presented. For the experimental part of the work an acrylic plate of 90cm X 90cm X 0.88 cm stiffened with beams of 0.82cm X 4 cm cross section and submitted to uniform loading was tested. In the numerical part of this study, the plate was analysed with a FEM code initially as a 3D problem, using shell elements to model both, th
