Abstract:
The authors of a new building code, seeking a method of design for two-way slabs, strove for the aualities of simplicity, adherence to familiar forms, adequate safety’, reasonable economy and avoidance of obvious irrationality; and a opted an em- pirical formula which takes separate account of continuity in the direction of the span, lateral con- tinuity and shape of the panel.
