Comparison of One-way and Two-way slab behavior


One-way slabs carry load in one direction. Two-way slabs carry load in two directions.

Comparison of One-way and Two-way slab behavior


One-way and two-way slab action carry load in two directions.

One-way slabs: Generally, long side/short side > 1.5

The two-way ribbed slab and waffled slab system: General thickness of the slab is 2 to 4 in.

Comparison of One-way and Two-way slab behavior Economic Choices


Flat Plate suitable span 20 to 25 ft with LL= 60 -100 psf Advantages Low cost formwork Exposed flat ceilings Fast Disadvantages Low shear capacity Low Stiffness (notable deflection)

Comparison of One-way and Two-way slab behavior Economic Choices


Flat Slab suitable span 20 to 30 ft with LL= 80 -150 psf Advantages Low cost formwork Exposed flat ceilings Fast Disadvantages Need more formwork for capital and panels

Comparison of One-way and Two-way slab behavior Economic Choices


Waffle Slab suitable span 30 to 48 ft with LL= 80 -150 psf Advantages Carries heavy loads Attractive exposed ceilings Fast Disadvantages Formwork with panels is expensive

Comparison of One-way and Two-way slab behavior Economic Choices


One-way Slab on beams suitable span 10 to 20 ft with LL= 60-100 psf Can be used for larger spans with relatively higher cost and higher deflections One-way joist floor system is suitable span 20 to 30 ft with LL= 80-120 psf Deep ribs, the concrete and steel quantities are relative low Expensive formwork expected.

General Design Concepts


(1) Direct Design Method (DDM) Limited to slab systems to uniformly distributed loads and supported on equally spaced columns. Method uses a set of coefficients to determine the design moment at critical sections. Two-way slab system that do not meet the limitations of the ACI Code 13.6.1 must be analyzed more accurate procedures

General Design Concepts


(2) Equivalent Frame Method (EFM) A three dimensional building is divided into a series of two-dimensional equivalent frames by cutting the building along lines midway between columns. The resulting frames are considered separately in the longitudinal and transverse directions of the building and treated floor by floor.

Method of Analysis
(1) Elastic Analysis Concrete slab may be treated as an elastic plate. Use Timoshenkos method of analyzing the structure. Finite element analysis

Method of Analysis
(2) Plastic Analysis The yield method used to determine the limit state of slab by considering the yield lines that occur in the slab as a collapse mechanism. The strip method, where slab is divided into strips and the load on the slab is distributed in two orthogonal directions and the strips are analyzed as beams. The optimal analysis presents methods for minimizing the reinforcement based on plastic analysis

Method of Analysis
(3) Nonlinear analysis Simulates the true load-deformation characteristics of a reinforced concrete slab with finite-element method takes into consideration of nonlinearities of the stress-strain relationship of the individual members.

Column and Middle Strips


The slab is broken up into column and middle strips for analysis

Minimum Slab Thickness for two-way construction


The ACI Code 9.5.3 specifies a minimum slab thickness to control deflection. There are three empirical limitations for calculating the slab thickness (h), which are based on experimental research. If these limitations are not met, it will be necessary to compute deflection.

Minimum Slab Thickness for two-way construction


(a) For 0.2 m 2

fy ln 0.8 + 200,000 h= 36 + 5 ( m 0.2)

fy in psi. But not less than 5 in.

(b) For 2 < m

fy l n 0 .8 + 200,000 h= 36 + 9

fy in psi. But not less than 3.5 in.

(c) For m < 0.2 Use the following table

Slabs without interior beams spanning between supports and ratio of long span to short span < 2
See section 9.5.3.3 For slabs with beams spanning between supports on all sides.

Minimum Slab Thickness for two-way construction


The definitions of the terms are: h = Minimum slab thickness without interior beams ln = = Clear span in the long direction measured face to face of column the ratio of the long to short clear span

m= The average value of for all beams on the sides of the panel.

Definition of Beam-to-Slab Stiffness Ratio,


Accounts for stiffness effect of beams located along slab edge reduces deflections of panel adjacent to beams.
