Do Can Analyze Structure with Flat Slab?

Hi everyone can somebody already design Structure with flat slab in

  • Hi sir,

    Hi, I realize that, if I model flat slab with plate element and use pinned support at the column location, it will induce high localized shear stress, especially at the edge. Do I need to include dummy elements to resolve such issue? The structure do not have beams.

    I am actually modelling a slab supporting on piles and I think this should be similar to flat slab supporting on columns. The following shows the loading conditions and the results of out of plane shear. 

    I also include my model here.Launch chamber.STD
