Paper published in the ACI Structural Journal

Our paper "Shear in One-Way Slabs under Concentrated Load Close to Support" is now available online at the website of the American Concrete Institute and will be published in the March/April 2013 version of the ACI Structural Journal.

Getting this paper in there was a long process. From the first drafts in December 2010, via the first submission in May 2011 and then revised submission and finally acceptance and receiving the print proofs - it's been an adventure. First babysteps into the real academic life?

The abstract of the paper is the following:
One-way slabs under concentrated loads are generally designed for shear by checking the beam shear resistance and the punching shear resistance over an effective width. Only a small number of test data regarding the shear resistance of one-way slabs subjected to concentrated loads is currently available. To be able to better evaluate the shear resistance of one-way slabs, a series of experiments was carried out on continuous one-way slabs (5 m x 2.5 m x 0.3 m [16.4 ft x 8.2 ft x 11.8 in.]) subjected to concentrated loads close to the supports, in which the load position, transverse reinforcement ratio, and concrete strength were varied. The test results are compared with code provisions and a method developed by Regan. The results show a different behavior in shear for slabs under concentrated loads than for beams.

  5. Hi Eva,Congrats on your published paper.My name is Yinka and i'm currently working on a paper which i have to submit very soon for publication soon. I have been looking around for a template or guidlines for submittion and i seem to be hitting the brick wall. I will need a favour from you if you can to forward a template or guideline format. Your help will be greatly appreciated. If you need any other information, you can reach me on this email "Olayinka.Oladiran@brunel.ac.uk.Thank you
