It is disturbing to notice that large differences can occur when designing reinforced concrete cantilever slabs for strength by elastic methods or, alternatively, by ultimate approaches such as the yield-line analysis. The results are therefore reported of a comparison between elastic analysis, yield-line analysis and laboratory tests for reinforced concrete cantilever slabs subjected to point loading. In essence, the theoretical study embraces a number of different reinforcement arrangements in a slab of infinite length and finite span.
