Abstract

This paper describes the extension of the grillage approach to the analysis of multi-cellular structures in the non-linear range and at collapse. The structures are considered to be subjected to lateral loads only and it is assumed that failure occurs under the action of high bending moments. An incremental loading procedure is adopted and results are presented to indicate the rate of convergence of the solution; the influence of different assumptions regarding the effective width of the compression flange is also studied. A comparison of the predicted failure loads with those obtained from an approximate yield line analysis shows satisfactory agreement.
