Excerpt from A New Method for Testing Reinforced Concrete Slabs: A Thesis
The object of this thesis is primarily to show the adaptibility of a hydraulic machine for the testing of slabs. It is believed that the machine used and described in the following pages removes the undesirable conditions mentioned above, and because of its cheapness, simplicity and ease of manipulation may be of some value. The number of slabs tested was restricted by the size of the room available for making, storing and testing the specimens, and by the time required to design the apparatus, make the slabs and perform the experiment. It being undesirable to install a crane or hoist, the size of the slabs was determined by the weight that could be readily moved and lifted with crow - bars and levers Accordingly, only a few slabs have been tested and insufficient data is at hand for a proper comparison and conclusion. It is hoped that the difficulties encountered in the conduct of the test and discussed in the following pages, may be of some service.
