Rao, KSS and Rangaiah, N and Ranganatham, BV (1979) Limit Analysis of Slabs with Free Edge. In: Journal of the Structural Division (former title), 105 (11). pp. 2419-2431.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The general method earlier developed by the writers for obtaining valid lower bound solutions to slabs under uniformly distributed load and supported along all edges is extended to the slabs with a free edge. Lower bound solutions with normal moment criterion are presented for six cases of orthotropically reinforced slabs, with one of the short edges being free and the other three edges being any combination of fixed and simply supported conditions. The expressions for moment field and collapse load are given for each slab. The lower bounds have been compared with the corresponding upper bound values obtained from the yield line theory with simple straight yield line modes of failure. They are also compared with Nielsen’s solutions available for two cases with isotropic reinforcement.
