Criteria are proposed for predicting the limit strength of uniformly loaded two-way action structural slabs and plates of various boundary conditions, taking into account the compressive membrane effect at large deflections. Also a serviceability factors concept is proposed for use in conjunction with limit strength design of slabs.
