Flat Slab – Types of Flat Slab Design and its Advantages

Flat slab is a reinforced concrete slab supported directly by concrete columns without the use of beams. Flat slab is defined as one sided or two-sided support system with sheer load of the slab being concentrated on the supporting columns ...

RCC SLAB DESIGN AND DETAILING GUIDE

RCC Slab design and detailing guidelines for depth of slab, loads on slab, reinforcement guide for one-way and two-way slabs have been tried to present here. Following are the RCC Slab Design and Detailing guidelines: RCC Slab Design Guidelines: a) Effective span ...

REINFORCEMENT DETAILING OF RCC SLAB OPENINGS (CUTOUTS)

Many times openings (cutouts) are required to be provided in reinforced concrete slab in buildings to provide way for lifts, or cables, ducts or other instrument to pass through one floor to other floors, mainly in the case of industrial ...

VOIDED SLAB – BUBBLE DECK TECHNOLOGY

In the 1950s, hollow-core slab were invented. The voided or hollow core system was created to reduce the weight of the concrete from the system. This concept removes and replaces concrete from center of the slab, where it is less ...

DESIGN OF SLAB – BASICS

DESIGN OF SLAB Slabs are generally designed on the assumption that they consists of a number of beams of breadth ‘one meter’. ...

YIELD LINE THEORY FOR SLAB DESIGN

In the case of two-way slab systems, which are statically indeterminate, detailed inelastic analysis (yield line analysis) is conducted. The moment coefficients given in the Code IS 456:200(Table 26) for two-way rectangular slabs with various possible edge conditions are based ...
