Wide Shallow Beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm starting design on a wide-shallow (slab-beam) post-tensioned slab and can find no maximum span to depth recommendations for this type of system, only classical two way flat plate (L/45 - cont) and one way slab and beam (L/30 - cont).  The system will be limited by strength and deflection considerations but has anyone run across recommendations for initial design of this hybrid system?
