Yield of a Square Reinforced Concrete Slab on Simple Supports, Allowing for Membrane Forces

An upper bound solution for the yield load of a simply supported, reinforced concrete, square slab is developed which allows for the effects of membrane action. The solution is based on an assumed rigid perfectly plastic behaviour. The loading on the slab considered is uniformly distributed but certain other symmetrical loadings could be analysed in a similar way. K.O. Kemp
