Abstract:

A design procedure is given for one-way and two-way standard reinforced concrete slabs allowed to respond to incipient collapse under blast loads. When tensile membrane action can be developed, larger incipient collapse deflections can be used in design than are currently allowed in the design manual. Design and construction requirements are specified to insure adequate tensile membrane resistance. A supplement is proposed for consideration as a supplement to the design manual.
