LimitState:SLAB features in Concrete Society magazine
An article entitled “Modern limit analysis tools for reinforced concrete slabs” appears in the July issue of Concrete, the official magazine of the Concrete Society.
The article, written jointly with colleagues from Ramsay Maunder Associates, is designed to alert readers of the magazine to recent developments in the field of limit analysis of reinforced concrete slabs. It is demonstrated that analysis tools now exist which allow highly accurate plastic analysis results to be obtained. For example, LimitState:SLAB is used to obtain a very close estimate (within 1%) of the true plastic capacity of a landing slab, a problem for which a highly inaccurate solution had been available in the literature since the 1990s.
More information about LimitState:SLAB is available here.
