An Equivalent Frame Method for Slab-column Structures

In this combined experimental and theoretical study the observed sequence of cracking in flat slabs is described and its effect on the distribution of moments examined. A modvied equivalent frame method for flat slabs which is simpler to use than the ACI approach has been developed. The moments predicted by the frame method are compared with other frame analyses and with the results of model tests. A.E. Long and D.J. Cleland
