Figure 3.4

Continuous solid slab: design summary

Note

It is presumed that the detailer would take this design and detail the slab to normal best practice. This would usually include rationalising, dimensioning and detailing curtailment, laps, U-bars and also undertaking the other checks detailed in 3.3.10 to 3.3.14. The determination of curtailment lengths, anchorages and laps is shown in detail using the principles in Eurocode 2. In practice these would be determined from published tables of data or by using reference texts [12, 21].
