Abstract:A simple compressive membrane load capacity estimate for laterally restrained reinforced concrete one-way slabs is developed for field use. The estimate uses the axial force-moment interaction equations and a ratio for the peak thrust to the slab's axial capacity. The resulting thrust enhanced moment capacities at the support and midspan hinge lines allow for a simple, and extremely accurate, estimate of the peak compressive membrane capacity using yield line theory.
