Design and Analysis of Concrete Slabs Using a Modified Strip Method

This paper describes a technique for the ultimate limit state analysis or design of reinforced concrete slabs. The modified strip method presented is a development of the strip technique using linear and quadratic programing optimisation. The first stage of the procedure uses linear programing to find the distribution of loads between the strips which, in the analysis case, leads to the maximum collapse load factor or, in the design case, the minimum reinforcement requirement.
