The response of deep reinforced concrete slabs to uniformly distributed dynamic loads as high as 700 psi was measured and compared with the static behavior of companion slabs. Comparisons between theoretical and experimental results were made. Experience has shown that one of the major difficulties in predicting the static behavior of reinforced concrete slabs results from the varying friction between the slab and bearing plate. The pressure seals and seal devices presented the primary experimental difficulty and made it impossible to yield the strongest slabs.
