Modern infrastructure often incorporates very thick reinforced concrete members that are critical elements in the load-carrying system of the structure. Transfer slabs, footings, and mat foundations in high-rise construction are examples of such members. As building heights increase, demands on these members generally become greater, resulting in larger member depths.
