General Reinforced concrete slabs may be categorized as one- or two-way slabs depending on the prevalent mode of bending of the slab. If the slab is supported on two parallel edges, the slab essentially bends in one direction (between the parallel supports). Bending (curvature) in the other direction is negligible. Such "one-way" slabs can be analyzed and designed in a manner very similar to beams. A unit width of the slab (b = 1 ft) is considered as a beam and the thickness of the slab and the required reinforcement are calculated. Since the reinforcement is the…
