Abstract:
Because of the uncertainty existing among bridge designers and concrete engineers regarding the distribution throughout a concrete slab of the effects of loads, it has been the custome to use a width of from 1 to 4 ft. as a repeating section.It has been recognized that these widths could probably be increased if more were learned regarding the distribution of the stresses.
