Slab Thickness Design of Heavy Industrial Concrete Pavements

Paper by TSOHOS from ISCR 7th 1994 Vienna Austria

The design of concrete pavements for industrial facilities (truck or container terminals, industrial storage, harbours) has been based either on design catalogues or charts This paper introduces a numerical solution, based on the theory of elasticity expressed in form of series. The reason is that such pavements carry very heavy wheel loads. The complexity of wheel configuration produces supplementary stresses, which have to be taken into account. The main advantage of the proposed solution is that it can be used for any loading conditions. The comparison of the results to those of other methods, like PCA, has given a very good confirmity.
