Analysis of Timber-Concrete Ceiling Structure in Multi-Storey Building


Article Preview

The paper deals with a numerical analysis of timber-concrete ceiling. The finite element method is used for the analysis. The calculation takes into account a dynamic effect of load. The structure creates the ceiling of the gymnasium. The goal of the paper is a study of ceiling eigenfrequencies and a maximum response to a harmonic excitation.
