Parametric Study of Flat Slab with Various Loading Types and Panel Aspect Ratio
Ruchik Soni,  Deepa Raval
Paper presents analysis of flat slab with drop panel subjected to realistic concentrated loadings – trapezoidal load, line load and patch load. Finite element analysis in software SAFE of rectangular flat slab panels under gravity loads is carried out for the different panel aspect ratio 1, 1.5 and 2. For different panel aspect ratio Positive and Negative moments of column strip and middle strips as well as Punching shear values at critical sections under trapezoidal load, line load and patch load are compared with that under Equivalent Uniformly distributed loads.
