Behaviour of simply supported RC skew slabs stiffened with shallow beams

Behaviour of simply supported RC skew slabs stiffened with shallow beams Skew slab is the most common structural element that finds numerous applications in practice, especially when there is any space constraint that prevents the selection of either square or rectangular slab. Due to its geometry, this type of slab behaves differently in comparison to the rectangular slabs and it is a very time-consuming process to predict the moment field in such type of slabs. It becomes still more complicated when some beam system is used to meet the prescribed serviceability criterion.

Abstract

Skew slab is the most common structural element that finds numerous applications in practice, especially when there is any space constraint that prevents the selection of either square or rectangular slab. Due to its geometry, this type of slab behaves differently in comparison to the rectangular slabs and it is a very time-consuming process to predict the moment field in such type of slabs. It becomes still more complicated when some beam system is used to meet the prescribed serviceability criterion. A set of mathematical expressions is presented in the paper that could be of help to predict the moment field being induced in skew slabs under external loads. The outcome of the proposed expressions is validated experimentally as well as numerically; a good agreement is observed in the results. An illustrative example is also presented in the paper to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed expressions.
