DEVELOPMENT OF A DESIGN MANUAL FOR CONCRETE FLOOR SLABS ON GRADE

THIS STUDY PREPARED A DESIGN MANUAL FOR CONCRETE SLABS ON GRADE SUBJECTED TO MODERATE TO HEAVY LOADS. EXISTING DESIGN PROCEDURES WERE REVIEWED, THEORETICAL STUDIES WERE MADE, AND AN INTERIM MANUAL WAS PREPARED. INFORMATION IN EXISTING MANUALS WAS CRITICALLY REVIEWED AND APPLICABLE MATERIAL USED EXTENSIVELY IN THE PREPARATION. ASSUMPTIONS MADE IN THE MANUALS WITH REGARD TO TYPE AND VOLUME OF VEHICULAR TRAFFIC WERE RE-EXAMINED ON THE BASIS OF A FIELD SURVEY AND REVISED WHEN NECESSARY.
