2014 10 23   A good rule of thumb is that a post tensioned system will roughly move about 1 inch for every 100 feet of slab that is not restrained by a lateral system If the edge of the slab is 50 feet away from the nearest shear wall this edge would move about ½ inch If this edge movement is prevented the slab or restraining element will most likely

The 45 Degree Rule of Thumb for Surcharges Groundforce

The theories set out above give an indication for why temporary works engineers adopt the 45 degree rule of thumb What is clear is that beyond 45° the size of the load has reduced in magnitude and the effective centre of the load has moved deeper The only discrepancy this leaves is in very shallow excavations with very close surcharges
