One-Way concrete slab construction, designated as "re-form", is described, in which high-strength galvanized corrugated steel is both form and reinforcement for the concrete, and in which temperature reinforcement, welded to the corrugated steel, performs shear tansfer. Structural tests are described and analyzed. Suggestions are given for moment distribution in slabs cracked over the supports in continuous spans. Long-time deflections of thin slabs are appraised. Design procedures and applications for re-form construction are indicated.
