Abstract

The application of a simplified grillage technique to the elastic analysis of multi-cellular structures is described. The problems involved in the idealization of a continuous plated structure by discrete, skeletal grillage members are discussed. The proposed approximate technique is economical and is suitable for the repeated analyses frequently required at the design stage. Comparisons with finite element results establish the accuracy of the grillage method for cellular structure of different proportions under a variety of support conditions.
