Then Tensile Membrane Action Of Non-orthogonal Slab at Elevated Temperature
The membrane action is well known for the rectangular slabs, however, as buildings had appear more and more different shapes, the requirement of fire engineering for slab fire resistance is not go to stay at the research on rectangular slab any more. Therefore, my aims are to research the behaviour of non-rectangular slabs at elevated temperature. The main area I am looking at is the tensile membrane action of the slab when the large deflection happened.
