Title: Design of Prestressed Lift Slabs For Deflection Control
Author(s): Edward K. Rice and Felix Kulka
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 681-694
Abstract:Prestressed concrete lift slabs have been used successfully, not only as an economical method of construction, but also as a medium to obtain flat slab buildings that have no deflection or camber. The analysis of a flat slab can be extremely complex. The beam method has been developed as an approximate but applicable method of design. By this analysis, slabs may be designed for proper behavior and strength without the use of the more complicated plate theory.
