NEW FOR 2014 Design professionals often prepare construction documents which do not follow the latest recommendations from ACI and may be at risk for designs that do not meet expectations or an implied standard of care. By understanding good slab design and applicable portions of the latest ACI documents, design professionals can produce appropriate designs and recognize bad ones. Design principles will be discussed and examples will be given to determine appropriate support conditions, loads, safety factors and material properties for thickness design. Appropriate details, jointing and reinforcing will be illustrated together with an overview of what information should be provided in the contract documents.
- Explore different slab system options and the appropriate system for their application.
- Determine applicable loads, safety factors and materials for the chosen system.
- Calculate the correct slab thickness for the soil support system and various loads.
- Provide suitable details, general notes and specifications.
