Just trying a second time with this one...
Does anybody have any references for the required / recommended camber for a two way slab. I have seen it done on drawings and I assume that it is calculated with a (DL + 20%LL+/-) value and then multiplied by the estimated long term factors given in the code...or a similar approach. I have looked through all of my references and I can't see any sign of it??
I'm curious: What sort of two-way slab has "camber?"

Do you mean a PT slab? Or is this something that is done with the formwork for a conventionally reinforced slab?
