Document Type: Journal Paper


The experimental results of tests on five models of one- and two-story flat plate structures subjected to uniformly distributed loads are presented. Included are the effects of the number of load points, static loads, and cyclic loads on deflection, cracking, and distribution of slab bending moments. The design and experimental load capacities of the models are compared.
