Title: Approaches to the design of reinforced concrete flat slabs

Ref Code: BR422
Authors: R M Moss

Abstract1: Choice of design method for reinforced concrete flat slabs should be based on what is appropriate for the structure, the designer's experience, and what will benefit the client most. This report gives pointers to how existing design guidance and methods could be developed and made more user-friendly, particularly with the introduction of Eurocode 2. It also points out issues for the permanent works designer to consider as a result of the desire to strike slabs earlier and speed up construction.
