A non-linear, layered finite element model for predicting the time dependent behaviour of reinforced concrete slabs under sustained transverse loading, is presented. The effects of biaxial creep and shrinkage are accounted for using a difference formulation of a non-linear creep model and an incremental relaxation type solution procedure. Agreement between theoretical calculations and deflection measurements from an in-service reinforced concrete floor slab and laboratory controlled beam tests is shown to be good. /TRRL/
