The relationship between limit analysis and yield-line analysis is investigated. Attention is restricted to simply supported, isotropic slabs subjected to single-point loadings. It is found that conventional yield-line analyses quite often give substantial overestimates of the carrying capacity. A general method is formulated for finding the yield-point load, and various examples are considered.
