Reinforcement for Concrete Roads

All available experience in experimental data shows that for slabs covering considerable areas, subjected to loading which may be concentrated over relatively small areas or for slabs which may be insufficiently supported over similar areas, bending moments are inevitably induced in the slab, producing tensile stresses in the underside of the slab, which in ordinary cases exceed those resultant from contraflexure in the upper faces.
