Title: Critical Steel Ratios in the Limit Design of Two-Way Reinforced Concrete Slabs
Author(s): Valeriu Petcu and Georgeta Stanculescu
Publication: Special Publication
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.
