The behavior and capacity of embedded steel plates in reinforced concrete structures, are studied using a finite-element model developed for non-linear analysis. Strength interaction diagrams and moment-rotation charts useful for analysis and design of such plates, are developed for eccentric compressive and eccentric tensile loading, at failure and collapse. Capacities for a common class of embedded plates with variation in its thickness are computed for the cases of combined eccentric compression and shear.
