Abstract : This paper presents several possible yield-line failure mechanisms and the corresponding equations for the ultimate flexural resistance of a slab with a door when subjected to a uniform pressure. The equations are limited to rectangular slabs with openings and are the beginning of an effort at the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory to develop a comprehensive design procedure for rectangular slabs subjected to blast loads.
