Allowable span to depth ratios for reinforced concrete slabs

Results from a theoretical finite element study of the time dependent behaviour of reinforced concrete slabs are used to develop a rational set of span to depth ratios, which ensure the rapid and simple control of slab deflections. The proposed design provisions, as well as the shortcomings of the currently available span to depth ratios in AS 1480-1974, are demonstrated by example (a).
