Re: Two way slab designed as one way

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would definately agree with your own opinion.  It would be considerably more
economical to design as a two-way slab since it will take into account all
boundary conditions and reduce the moments accordingly.  The slab thickness will
probably be thinner as well with less deflection.
