Do anyone has the formula for a point load on a simply supported slab using the "theory of elasticity". AASHTO has a very simple formula but it is around 25% conservative. Essentially there are both torsional moments and bending moments that resist the point load. The crossing beam analogy is the simplest most conservative way to determine the moments in both directions. Any tips will be greatly appreciated.
