Abstract:
While there has been no doubt of the economy and practicability of reinforced concrete for massive construction and where heavy loads are carried, the advisability of its use for light floor loads, especially if the spans are long, has been questioned even by those who favor its use in other instances. The dead weight of the material itsled has often operated against its use, especially where the carrying capacity of the soil required the unit pressure to be kept to the minimumm or from other like causes.
