Abstract: Folded plates are very efficient structures which have many advantages. There are various methods available for the analysis of folded plate structures. Some of the popular methods are the Simpson’s Method and the Whitney’s Method. These methods are accurate for the design purposes but these are very lengthy and cumbersome. Moreover large quantity of data can lead to errors and also for analyzing folded plates for different data will take too much time. Hence there should be a computer model for analyzing the folded plates. This dissertation work presents analysis of reinforced concrete folded plates by developing a model based on Simpson’s Method. Programmes have been developed by me in MATLAB for the analysis of folded plates. The results of these programmes are verified by developing a Finite Element model in ABAQUS. Various shapes of folded plates are analyzed by using the MATLAB programmes with varying cross-sectional parameters and graphs are plotted.
