Appears on pages(s): 217-242
In this paper the writer desires to state briefly, without attempting to make connection or applications, the evidence presented by the test of a flat slab floor in a reinforced concrete building, and also such confirming evidence form other tests made recently at the University of Illinois, as is applicable to a consideration of the basis of design for reinforced concrete floor slabs. Owing to the limited time it will be necessary to simply state many conlusions. Points on which a division of opinion may be expected will be discussed more fully.
