This is from an older version of the CRSI manual:

Sub-slabs under other slabs - 2" (50mm)


Domestic or light commercial (<100 psf) - 4" (100mm)
Commercial/Institutional/Barns (100-200 psf) - 5" (125mm)
Industrial/gas stations/garages (<500 psf) - 6"(150mm)
Industrial (600-800 psf) - 7"(175mm)
Industrial (1500 psf) - 8"(200mm)
Industrial (2500 psf) - 9"(225mm)
Industrial (3000-3500 psf) - 10"(250mm)
with the following reinf:
2" - none
4" - one layer WWF 6x6-W1.4xW1.4
5" - one layer WWF 6x6-W2.1xW2.1
6" - one layer WWF 6x6-W2.9xW2.9
7" - two layers WWF 6x6-W2.9xW2.9
8" - two mats of #4@12"o.c. ea. way (top and bottom)
9" - two mats of #5@12"o.c. ea. way (top and bottom)
10" - two mats of #5@ 8 to 12" o.c. ea. way (top and bottom)
Now these are very empiricle and I don't really ever use WWF in slabs on grade anyway. Just a
rough rule of thumb for slab design that was once suggested by CRSI.
