RE: One way concrete slab

I would design it like a t-beam without the beam.  There is other criteria to meet besides ½ the span length.  Like 16 times the thicness of the slab, which ever is less.

For a concentrated load at mid-span of a precast plank roof, the PCI Design
Handbook recommends using an effective width equal to one-half the span
length. This seems reasonable to me.

What effective width can I use on a one way slab to support a 8" CMU wall?
