RE: Two-way flat plate moment frame question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Using a slab to act as part of a  frame is generally not advised when
dealing with seismic loads.  The problem is that under the high drifts that
will likely occur, cracks will occur at the interface to the column which
will reduce the shear capacity of the slab.  In fact you may find that the
code dose not allow such systems in some locals.
