2007), the puncture-resistant capacity can be improved by increasing the column section, increasing the effective depth of the slab, increasing the flexural reinforcement, using high-strength concrete or using shear reinforcement on slab-column connections.
Other limiting factors, such as relief from slightly wavy to tightly curled, walking short effective depth, low fertility, rockiness, stoniness, and presence of gullies gravillosidad are added.

In this study, using the basic principle of mechanics and calibrating against the factors of the effective depth and slenderness ratio, an equation for predicting diagonal cracking strength is proposed for both normal and high strength concrete beams.
The carbon nanotubes offer the ability to provide a very high aspect ratio to an AFM probe, allowing researchers to expand the effective depth of the imaging from the surface of the probe by several nanometers to even microns," Nau explains.
In the latter case, an effective semi-elliptical flaw is based on the effective length and the area of the worst flaw identified by an RSTRENG-type analysis, recalculated to give an effective depth for a semi-elliptical flaw of the same effective area and failure stress [Jaske and Beavers 2002, Jaske et al.
