N2 - HThe report describes a new slab element, used for finite element analysis, which is characterized by the separation of torsional and flexural rigidities. The element is called the 'Hotch-Potch'-element as it is neither a compatible nor an equilibrium plate element but is an equilibrium element for a transformed plate consisting of a plate with no flexural rigidity and a grating-system with no torsional rigidity.The element is well suited for analyses of reinforced concrete slabs and the element parameters are the same as the parameters commonly used for such. Reinforcement ratios and reinforcement positions in two orthogonal directions in the top and bottom can be specified independently. A similar general orthotropic shell element is under development.The element has been implemented in the FEA-programme HP and a number of test problems have been analyzed.
