Title: Moments and Stresses in Slabs
Author(s): H.M. Westergaard and W.A. Slater
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 415-538
Abstract:The subject of the strength of flat slabs has received considerable attention during the past ten years. In November, 1910, the floor of the Deere and Webber Building at Minneapolis was tested. This was the first field test of a reinforced-concrete building floor in which strain measurements in the reinforcement and in the concrete were taken at various places in the building. Since that time many other tests have been made and much study has been given to the analytical side of the problem.
