Numerical Analysis of Membrane Action in Hollow Core Floors

by J. P. Straman, Delft Univ of Technology, Stevinweg, United Kingdom,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computing in Civil and Building Engineering


The emphasis of the investigation is on the diaphragm action of precast floor structures. In order to improve existing manual calculation methods a parameter study has been carried out using the finite element method computer package DIANA. In this contribution the modelling of the floors, boundary conditions and some results are described.
