An experimental programme has been designed to cast and test 18 beam supported reinforced concrete skew slabs subjected to distributed loading. The variables include edge rigidity, skew angle and coefficient of orthotropy. The load deflection behaviour, ultimate strength and the effect of cracking were studied and the results are presented. The current work highlights the effect of membrane action on skew slabs with lateral restraints and its signficance.
