The Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Slabs

In the design of reinforced concrete slabs the Wood-Armer equations are used extensively. However; their direct application to assessment can result in a conservative estimate of structural capacity. Equations based on the same fundamental principles are derived which provide a more precise measure ofthe ability of a given slab to withstand an imposedfield of moments. Application of these equations will lead, in many cases, to an improved assessment for bridges previously analysed using the Wood-Armer equations and found to require a load restriction. S.R. Denton and C.J. Burgoyne
