The stresses and deflections of slabs investigated here are caused by loads. The load is a pressure transmitted through the footprint of a tire of a landing gear. The load or loads is placed on a slab with a joint which is capable of transferring a part of the load to the adjacent slab. The joint between the two slabs is assumed to be elastic and continuous and to transfer the load by vertical shear without bending moments across the joint. Formulas are derived for stresses and deflections of the slabs on both sides of the joint, and for the transfer load, which lend themselves to numerical computations. The general assumptions are stated in common for all cases under investigation, then the order of presentation in each of the cases is Summary of the formulas derivations and numerical examples.
