ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF CONCRETE SLABS ON GROUND

CONVENTIONAL METHODS OF ANALYSIS (UTILIZING WINKLER'S ASSUMPTION, OR AN ELASTIC HALF-SPACE) WERE REVIEWED BRIEFLY. REFERENCE WAS MADE TO OBSERVATIONS THAT FOR LIGHTLY LOADED SLABS (HOMES), OR WHERE THE LOADS ARE TEMPORARY (PAVEMENTS, INDUSTRIAL SLABS ON GROUND), WARPING CAUSED BY MOISTURE AND TEMPERATURE GRADIENTS WAS SUFFICIENT TO LEAVE A PORTION OF THE SLAB ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED. A NEW THEORY WAS OUTLINED FOR CALCULATING STRESSES AND DEFLECTIONS IN PARTLY SUPPORTED SLABS OF FINITE SIZE. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS THEORY IN THE ANALYSIS OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS WAS TREATED. FINALLY, THE RESULTS OF FULL-SCALE MEASUREMENTS FOR BOTH UPWARD AND DOWN- WARD WARPING THAT CONFIRMS THE VALIDITY OF THE NEW THEORY WERE PRESENTED. /ARTICLE/
