A series of tests on simple slabs and slabs with overhanging ends demonstrated that: (I) With cold drawn wire a working stress of 50 percent of the elastic limit as defined by ASTM is permissible. (2) Electric welding at intersections, if wires do not differ greatly in size, is not iniurious. (3) Droop-ing of the reinforcement does not weaken the slab. (4) It is permissible to use clear spans in computing moments.
