be taken into consideration in
two directions.

## Where inertia in case of vertical loads is as follows

I1 = inertia of upper column section
I 2 = inertia of lower column section
I 3 = inertia of cross section of slab without drop

## Conditions for using this method

1 − The ratio between the length and the width of the panal
not to exceed 4/3 ( L / L S >/ 4/3 )
2 − The difference between any two adjacent spans not exceed than 10% the
largest one
3 − The difference between any two spans not exceed than 20% the largest one
4 − Number of spans in each direction not less 3 spans
5 − The length of external panel not exceed the length of the internal panel

This values is correct in case of col. Strip width equal to field strip width
But incase of field strip width is bigger than half length of panel

actual width
M field act. = M field cal. *
1/2 length of panel

## In this case you may reduce column strip moment but

The total moment in col. Strip and field strip is constant
