Intended as a designer's handbook, this publication explains the basic principles of Yield Line Theory and its application as a versatile hand method for the design and assessment of suspended reinforced concrete slabs. It demonstrates many potential advantages over other methods of design, particularly for production on site. Theory is followed by practical design examples including how to tackle flat slabs, rafts, and refurbishment and slab-beam systems.
