Abstract:

Ultimate strength equations are summarized for square, simply supported reinforced concrete slabs, and these equations are used to predict the dynamic ultimate and collapse strengths of three slabs. The predicted strengths are compared with experimental results from airblast load tests, and the extent of damage to the slabs is shown under over-pressures approximately equal to the predicted strengths.
