Finite element (FE) analysis, a powerful computer method, has become an increasingly popular method of analysing flat slab concrete structures. However, there are some pitfalls to avoid, that often catch out the unwary. This publication seeks to introduce FE methods, explain how concrete can be successfully modelled and how to interpret the results.
