RE: Drop Panels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If there is no drift, and the moment stays negative over the panel area, then the drop panel is always in compression, and you shouldn't need steel in the drop panel.

Just out of curiosity, how many would say that a
4" drop panel below a 9 1/2" two-way slab needs
reinforcement? What if I added that there is no
drift issues? If you still say yes, please state
why (references would be great)!
Thanks in advance,
