HOW SLAB DESIGN HAS DEVELOPED IN THE PAST, AND WHAT THE INDICATIONS ARE FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT

WORLD WAR II PRODUCED A GREAT SURGE FORWARD IN THE TECHNIQUES OF SLAB DESIGN BECAUSE OF SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENTS IN THEORY OF PLASTICITY, MOMENT REDISTRIBUTION AND RELAXATION TECHNIQUES, FINITE DIFFERENCE METHODS, AND THE ADVENT OF COMPUTERS. MODERN LIMIT-STATE APPROACHES IN OUR CODES ARE DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTABLE TO THESE BEGINNINGS. IN THE FUTURE, AUTOMATIC DESIGN BY COMPUTERS WILL GROW, BUT MORE ATTENTION WILL HAVE TO BE PAID TO LOAD SURVEYS AND SURVEYS OF PERMISSIBLE DEFLECTIONS, SINCE THE STUDIES IN MEMBRANE ACTION, WHICH WILL CERTAINLY TAKE PLACE, MAY WELL RENDER THE COLLAPSE LOADS OF LESS IMPORTANCE. FUTURE SLAB DESIGNS MUST DEVELOP WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF COMPOSITE STRUCTURES. /ACI/
