Vibration Serviceability of Composite Slabs

Vibration analysis of floors is not entirely new in the field of structural engineering. Numerous studies and researches have been devoted to human-structure interaction,...

Building Construction Industry Reacts to Weird Slab Collapse

A lot of engineers and builders from all over the world have reacted to the weird partial collapse of a concrete slab in...

The Role of Compression Steel in Deflection of Reinforced Concrete Structures

Deflection is one of the most important serviceability limit state criteria in the design of reinforced concrete structures. Excessive deflection in a structure can...

Cracking in Concrete

Eurocode recognises that cracking is normal in concrete subjected to bending, shear, torsion, and restraint from movement (clause 7.3.1 EN 1992 1-1). Cracking is...

Crack Width and Crack Spacing Calculation in Concrete

Cracking occurs in concrete when the restrained strain exceeds the tensile strain capacity of the concrete. In critical elements like water retaining structures, crack...

Minimum Area of Steel for Imposed Deformation Cracking

Minimum reinforcement is provided to ensure that yielding does not occur, and by so doing, cracking is adequately controlled in a concrete section. The...

Load Transfer from Slab to Beams – A Comparative Analysis

In the design of reinforced concrete structures, floor loads are usually transferred from slabs to beams, and from the beams, the loads are transferred...

Structural Design of Ribbed Slabs

Ribbed slab is a type of reinforced concrete slabs in which some of the volume of concrete in the tension zone is removed and...

Analysis and Design of Cantilever Retaining Walls on Staad Pro

In this post, we are going to show how cantilever retaining walls can be analysed and designed on Staad Pro software, and also compare...

An Investigation on the Analysis of Beam and Raft Slab Using Staad Pro

Modern codes of practice are increasingly recognising the computational power of structural analysis  softwares. Staad Pro is a renowned structural analysis and design software...

Structural Design of Flat Slabs to Eurocode 2

Flat slabs can offer economical solutions to wider floor spans in a reinforced concrete building. Flat slabs are slabs that are supported directly by...

Example on Structural Design of Waffle Slab

Waffle slabs can be described as the equivalent of 2-way solid slabs especially when the spans are large, and ribbed system is to be...
