What method would be appropriate to analyze this concrete structure? A two-way rectangular concrete slab with walls and central column.

I would like to understand how to model it with either yield line method or equivalent frame method. Or both to be honest.

I'm studying those methods at introductory level, but haven't found any example of a similar case, so unsure how to draw out the analytical models.

  • $\begingroup$ Your drawing is not clear. Are those load bearing walls or invisible columns? That is critical to understanding what method needs to be used $\endgroup$ – Rhodie Jan 7 '19 at 1:19
  • $\begingroup$ @Rhodie Yes intention was for walls to be load bearing. $\endgroup$ – bretddog Jan 11 '19 at 8:13
  • $\begingroup$ I'll have a look at my textbooks which deal with this. Maybe I'll have an answer soon $\endgroup$ – Rhodie Jan 11 '19 at 10:22
