Title:Analysis of Plates Continuous Over Flexible Beams
Author(s):Sutherland, J.G.; Goodman, L.E.; Newmark, N.M.
Subject(s):Ritz energy method
Plates (Engineering)
Plate deflection
Abstract:The Ritz energy method is used to obtain solutions for an interior panel of a plate or slab which is continuous over a rectangular grid of flexible beams supported by columns at their intersections. It is assumed that the plate is uniformly loaded over its whole area, and that parallel beams are of equal stiffness and are spaced regularly. The plate deflection is represented by an infinite series of polynomial functions derived by W. J. Duncan for beams clamped at both ends; these functions lead to relatively accurate results with a reasonable amount of numerical work. Deflections, moments and average moments for cases covering a wide range of beam-plate rigidities and width-length ratios are presented in tabular and graphical form.
