A study was performed to determine if single degree-of-freedom non-linear models can adequately represent the dynamic response of reinforced concrete slabs to time-dependent pressure loadings. Test data were used from static and dynamic experiments conducted by Waterways Experiment Station WES and the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory NCEL. The primary conclusion that 1 d-o-f models can be fitted to the data by using model parameters that are physically realistic. Another major conclusion is that non-linear structures such as RC slabs should be tested at a variety of levels of excitation. Author
