Re: point load vs. effective width

Quick Wu,

Take a look at Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain.  In the 6th Edition by
Warren C. Young, published by McGraw Hill, Section 7.11 deals with Beams of
Relatively Great width and includes a discussion of a wide canitlever slab
under a concentrated load.  Its also discussed in the equivalent part of the
4th edition.  Contact me directly if you need a copy of the pages from Roark.
