Abstract

"A reinforced concrete member is by no means a truly elastic member, hence all ordinary deflection calculations relating to it, whichever method, are approximate. By the use of model study actual reinforced concrete slab models, of different end conditions, were built and tested for deflections under uniform loadings. Theoretical and actual deflection of reinforced concrete slabs are compared. The results of these tests indicate that the theoretical deflection equations may be 60 to 80 percent in error when applied to reinforced concrete slabs"--Abstract, page 2.
