RE: Simplified Plate Analysis

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've run across a method called the Finite Grid Method (FGM) in a chapter on
mat analysis in Joseph Bowles "Foundation Analysis and Design", 4th Ed.,
McGraw-Hill, 1988. I've never used it.

Subject: Simpified Plate Analysis

Is anyone on this list familiar with a simplified 2-D plate analysis method
using orthogonal unit strips?  This method was apparently developed by a
German grad student named Grashoff (sp?) earlier this century.

I'm looking for published material that describes the method and the
background.  You can respond either on the list or to me directly.
