Correspondence. Deflexions and Bending Moments Produced by a Load Distributed over a small Area of an Infinite Circular Slab on an Elastic Foundation ’ by W. E. Scriven and W. R. Pilgrim, published in The Structural Engineer, October 1965

Dr. R. N. Franklin (Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford) writes:- ‘The use of the analysis given for design needs to be tempered by two considerations in practice: ( l ) the validity of the assumed manner in which the load is applied, (2) the extent to which the soil reactive pressure is described by the discontinuously elastic model implied by the use of a modulus of subgrade reaction. I have examined both of these points elsewhere.‘
