- Design a one-way ribbed slab with 3 equal continuous spans
BS8110- - It satisfies the criteria of BS8110 for using Table 3.12
§3.5.2.3 &
§3.5.2.4
For +ve moment, design the most critical section:
i.e. End Span, Span (upport c-r) L = 6 m
For -ve moment, design the most critical section:
i.e. First Interior Support
► Material Properties:
fy = 460 N/mm² (main & shear reinforcement)
fcu = 30 N/mm² (C25/30 Concrete)
RCC Weight = 25 kN/m³

► Loading:
Floor Finishes & Services (SDL) = 1.20 kN/m2
Rapidwall Formwork (SDL) = 0.4 kN/m2
BS6399-1 Characteristic Imposed Load = 2.50 kN/m2

► Slab Sizing:
Let topping thickness, hf = 100 mm
Rib width, bw = 230 mm
Flange Width b = 500 mm (Rib spacing)
bw/b = 0.46 > 0.3
