A Study on Flat Slab Assessment with ETABS Software
Reqibul Yousuf , Ashish Kumar, Azmat Jan
Flat slabs are becoming increasingly fashionable these days, both architecturally and aesthetically. Flat slabs are gaining popularity these days due to their numerous benefits. Flat slabs are utilised in the construction of high-rise structures because they lower building height, allow for easy reinforce placement, require less time to build, and are easier to shape. Flat slab construction is commonly utilized in reinforced concrete structures all over the world because it decreases the cost of form work, construction time, and is simple to install. Without the need of beams, the floor slab system directly supports the columns. In general, the most common challenge encountered when constructing a flat slab is punching shear and flexure shear failure. In my research, I used ETABS software to develop flat slabs for flexural shear.
