Author(s): Valeriu Petcu and Georgeta Stanculescu

Publication: Special Publication

Volume: 30

Issue:

Appears on pages(s): 287-300

Keywords: concrete slabs; limit design methods; loads (forces); reinforced concrete; research; strength; structural analysis; two-way slabs; yield-line method

Abstract:
Tests on fifteen reinforced concrete slabs were carried out in order to obtain the critical values of the steel ratios up to which the Yield-Line Theory may be applied for predicting safe ultimate loads for two-way reinforced concrete slabs.
