Title:Ribbed Slabs Under Concentrated Loads
Author(s):Attajarusit, T.; Gamble, W.L.
Subject(s):Ribbed slabs
Concrete structures
Abstract:Studies of ribbed slabs subjected to single and multiple concentrated loads were carried out on both one-span and two-span continuous structures. The ribbed slab was decomposed into a series of beam and slab elements. Joint forces of the decomposed structure were determined under the condition that forces and displacements of both elements at each joint. be equal. A solution for the structure under the applied loads was obtained by substituting the calculated joint forces into the equilibrium equations of the individual elements. The results obtained were internal moments and forces in the ribs due to the applied loads. Also calculated were the equivalent uniformly distributed loads on the ribbed slabs subjected to multiple loads such as might be found in parking garages.
