THE ANALYSIS OF SLABS BY THE YIELD-LINE THEORY

DE BEREKENING VAN PLATEN VOLGENS DE VLOEILIJENTHEORIE

The first chapter of this document contains a discussion of the bending and failure of reinforced concrete beams, and a general survey of the yield-line theory as a method of analysis for determining the collapse load of slabs is presented. A description is given of the stages of cracking with increasing load, and possible yield-line patterns for slabs are illustrated. The application of the yield-line theory where yield lines are near an unsupported edge is considered and also the distribution of forces in fracture portions of slabs and the effect of direction of reinforcement. Worked examples of calculating the load capacity of slabs are included. Chapter two gives details of and explanatory comments on the directives (1962) for the design of floors by the yield-line theory.
