The use of the effective beam width model to predict respond of flat plate structure subjected to lateral loading is a common practice. Nevertheless, usage of this model is still limited to two-dimension model. This paper extends the application of equivalent grid model to analyze flat plate structures three dimensionally. The effective grid width is analyzed empirically from experimental result. Structure analysis conducted by using both linear and nonlinear analysis. The result is discussed in this paper.
