Shallow Reinforced Concrete Pads.

Reinforced concrete pads are similar to the mass concrete pads but for the same conditions can be thinner when reinforced with steel. The reduction in thickness is made possible by the introduction of reinforcement on the tensile face of the pad which increases the pad’s resistance to bending moment (see Fig. 9.12).
