Designing collectors in concrete floor slabs can appear relatively
straightforward. However, there are subtle complexities in the
calculation of collector forces, and the application of these forces to
collector design. This presentation will review some of potential
pitfalls in collector design, including prescriptive code-level forces
and nonlinear response history analysis. Proper collector design can
help ensure that the building response meets the design intent, and can
also help in the plan check/peer review process.
