Moment Transfer and the Ultimate Capacity of Slab Column Structures

The paper gives details of tests on model slab-column subsystems in which the moment transfer from the slab to the edge and interior columns is investigated. Measured moments are compared with those estimated using frame analysis and plate bending finite element analysis. A comparison is also made of the shear capacity at the interior column with that predicted by the British and American Codes and other methods of analysis. In all cases the relevant recommendations of CP110 are more conservative than the other approaches examined. A.E. Long, D.J. Cleland and D.W. Kirk
