    A discussion and examples of soft conversion technique. Williams,Soil moisture and density measurements at Australian aerodromes, Proc. The original FHA request for advisory services under this con- tract dates from 27 February and called for the following: A determination of criteria for proper design and construction of heated and unheated slabs-on-ground to ensure structural sound- ness, including a. Google Scholar Prescott, J. Some troubles doubtless could be attributed to basic flaws in concept or construction, while others resulted from trans- planting an otherwise satisfactory slab type to a different environ- ment, to long-term cyclical changes in environment, or to use with a residential structure of different size, shape, or type of super- structure than that used when good experience was recorded.

    The basis for this latter series is presented under the problem statement above. Google Scholar Glenn, E. The first BRAB study of slabs-on-ground which treated struc- turally related problems dates toand the series of reports leading to this document, from September Springer, Boston, MA. Every owner should be advised by the designer and contractor that it is normal to expect some cracking and curling on every project.

In: General Geology. Following the determination of allowable deflection differential movement or settlement and support conditions, the dimensioning for stiffness and reinforcing for strength of the slab are deter- mined through an empirical design procedure which is derived and presented in detail.

Advantages and disadvantages of these slab design methods are provided, including the ability of some slab designs to minimize cracking and curling more than others.

Google Scholar Lytton, R. Fibers were suggested as a substitution to the WWR. A discussion and examples of soft conversion technique. Google Scholar Russam, K. McNicholl, and H. Indeed, in the early days of BRAB's study of slab problems, success seemed to some to warrant less stringent requirements even for entirely untried applications, and problems seemed to others to warrant more stringent requirements even for applications where experi- ence had been satisfactory.

There is very little documentation either of the evolve- ment of the many slab types used and in use or of the difficulties encountered; however, it is known that, with many, difficulties have occurred.

Expansive soils are a worldwide problem. When other matters are treated in this report, consideration is limited strictly to their influence on me overall design of the house slab. In instances where Type III slabs become necessary because of poor soil conditions or a climate which produces alternating pe- riods of drought and excessive soil moisture, the successful per- formance of the slab depends equally on design and quality control.

ACI R Guide to Design of Slabs-on-Ground. This guide presents information on the design of slabs-on-ground, primarily industrial floors. It addresses the planning, design, and detailing of slabs. Background information on design theories is followed by discussion of the types of slabs, soil-support systems, loadings, and jointing.

This manual replaces the Manual for Planning and Construction of School Buildings published by the Department of Education. The old manual has served us well for the past 31 years, and even though it is old, it remains a very good document.
