A Generalized Strip Method of Reinforced Concrete Slab Design.
Doctoral thesis, University of London.
This thesis is concerned with the development of the strip method of-reinforced concrete slab design to extend and improve its practical use. The existing elastic and plastic methods for reinforced concrete slab design are first reviewed. The fundamentals and conditions for uniqueness of the predicted collapse load of slabs designed by the strip method are examined. A new generalised strip method of reinforced concrete slab design is suggested which overcomes the limitations of the Hillerborg method. An experimental programme of tests on model slabs designed by the new method is described and results are compared with the theory. The relevance of this work in the design of concrete slabs is discussed and recommendations are made for future work.
