Title: Folded Slab Construction*
Author(s): Felix J. Samuely
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 447-460
Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Mr. Samuely discusses design principles for folded slab roofs, stair landings, and galleries, with special attention to shear forces and to stresses produced by differential deformation in the slabs. Beam action of the fold or "quoin" is explained. Precast elements, prestressing, and composite construction (precast with cast-in-place concrete) are shown as they apply to construction. Structures in folded slab England and America illustrate use of folded slabs in a wide variety of shapes.
