The theory of dimensional analysis was applied to the deisng of reinforced concrete structural models of small home foundation slabs. Methods of fabricating satiafactory models were developed. Static stiffness measurements are reported on six different designs of the same cost and size. Two full-scale foundations were tested corresponding to a pair of the model designs, and model and full-scale results are compared.
