Main floor interior wall removal:
Parametric studies were conducted on the wall and slab thicknesses for both models, used to simulate the effects of increasing the respective structural element stiffness.
Main floor exterior wall removal:
Parametric studies were conducted on the wall and slab thicknesses. It was found that the wall thicknesses did not contribute to reducing the vertical displacement.
Deep beam action - senstivity and effectiveness:
The contribution of deep beam actions from the perimeter wall were studied. This was done by including perimeter walls with a thickness of 125mm.
