CREEP IN REINFORCED CONCRETE SLABS SUBJECTED TO REPEATED LOADS

DEFLECTIONS AND STRESSES IN SIMPLY SUPPORTED REINFORCED CONCRETE SLABS SUBJECTED TO REPEATED SUSTAINED LOADS ARE DISCUSSED. A THEORY FOR CALCULATING SLAB DEFECTIONS AND STRESSES IN REINFORCEMENT AND CONCRETE HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH USES THE CREEP FUNCTION OF ARUTYUNYAN-TYPE FOR PLAIN CONCRETE. BY USING AN ELECTRONIC DIGITAL COMPUTER FOR THE NUMERICAL WORK, CREEP RESPONSE OF FLEXED REINFORCED CONCRETE SLABS UNDER THE ACTION OF AN ARBITRARY VARYING LOAD CAN EASILY BE CALCULATED. CREEP RECOVERY CURVE OF DEFLECTIONS AND STRESSES AT AN ARBITRARY TIME AFTER UNLOADING CAN ALSO BE OBTAINED WITHOUT ADDING ANY SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS TO THE PROCEDURE. /TRRL/A/
