Title: Analysis of Results of Load Tests on Panels of Reinforced Concrete Buildings
Author(s): Emile G. Perrot
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 216-221
Abstract:Designers of reinforced concrete structures cannot overestimate the advantage of experiements on full size members, such as columns and beams. Before the United States Government and the universities had undertaken to clear the clouded atmosphere concerning the design of reinforced concrete, one had to depend on the experience gained from actual structures and the test loads put on these buildings. As the number of buildings erected was limited, the available data was, of course, meager; but with the immense volume of work constructed to-day, a study of the behavior of various types of floor construction would appear to be both useful and instructive.
