Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 360R-06.
This document presents information on the design of slabs on grade, primarily industrial floors and the slabs adjacent to them. The report addresses the planning, design, and detailing of the slabs. Background information on design theories is followed by discussion of the soil support system, loadings, and types of slabs. Design methods are given for plain concrete, reinforced concrete, shrinkage-compensating concrete, and post-tensioned concrete slabs, followed by information on shrinkage and curling problems. Design examples appear in an appendix.
