Continuous oneway solid slab

This calculation is intended to show in detail the provisions of designing a slab to Eurocode 2 using essentially the same slab as used in Example 3.2.

A 175 mm thick continuous slab is required to support screed, finishes, an office variable action of 2.5 kN / m2 and demountable partitions (@ 2 kN / m). The slab is supported on 200 mm wide load-bearing block walls at 6000 mm centres. /ck = 30, /yk = 500 and the design life is 50 years. A fire resistance of 1 hour is required. Figure 3.3

* A free unsupported edge is required to use 'longitudinal and transverse reinforcement' <9.3.1.4(1)> generally using U-bars with legs at least 2h long. For slabs 150 mm deep or greater, SMDSC  standard detail recommends U-bars lapping 500 mm with bottom steel and extending 0.1/ top into span.

As Section 3.2, BS EN 1990 Exp. (6.10b) governs <Fig. 2.5>
