Abstract:
Designing and constructing a slab-on-ground to act as a structural diaphragm increases the risk of out-of-joint cracking. This article discusses this risk, describes design and reinforcement requirements for such slabs, and encourages designers to consider alternative details. It also discusses construction details commonly used to limit wall-panel bowing.
