Abstract:
The reinforced-concrete structure consisting of square or rectangular slabs each of which is supported on four sides on beams or walls possesses obvious architectural advantages, and deserves for this reason alone a careful examination of its features of strength and economy. The problem involves a consideration of the slabs and of the supporting girders.
