STUDY OF FLEXURAL FAILURE OF SLABS RESTING ON STABILIZED BASES

ETUDE DES CARACTERISTIQUES DE RUPTURE EN FLEXION SUR DALLES DES ASSISES TRAITEES

TO OBTAIN A DEEPER KNOWLEDGE OF THE FLEXURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF SLABS RESTING ON STABILIZED BASES WITH A VIEW TO ESTABLISHING CORRELATIONS BETWEEN FLEXURAL STRENGTH ON A SLAB AND THAT ON PRISMATIC SAMPLES AND IN TENSION, IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A BETTER ESTIMATION OF STRUCTURAL DESIGN FROM CURRENT TEST RESULTS. IN 1979 IT IS ENVISAGED TO STUDY SAND STABILIZED WITH CEMENT AND PRECRUSHED SLAG WHICH WILL BE SUBJECTED TO BENDING TESTS ON SLABS, BARS, TRAPEZOIDAL SAMPLES AND TO DIRECT TENSILE TESTS.
