Abstract:

Incipient collapse deflection data and an analysis method, reported in Phase I of this study, were used to propose an incipient collapse deflection criteria for one-way and two-way slabs. A relationship for the incipient collapse deflection of slabs, when tensile membrane action can be developed, is given in terms of the short span and steel rupture strains. Structural design details, to insure that membrane action can be developed, are discussed and experimental verification tests are recommended. The Phase III report will recommend a design procedure for one-way and two-way slabs subjected to blast loads. Author
