ACI MANUAL OF CONCRETE PRACTICE 1991. PART 3. USE OF CONCRETE IN BUILDINGS--DESIGN, SPECIFICATIONS, AND RELATED TOPICS. DESIGN HANDBOOK VOLUME 3--DESIGN OF TWO-WAY SLABS

Volume 3 of the ACI Design Handbook series presents Design Aids for use in the engineering design and analysis of reinforced concrete slab systems carrying loads by two-way acion. These Design Aids consist of tables and graphs that eliminate the need to repeatedly perform certain routine cal culations. Design Aids are provided for the selection of the slab thickness; for the computation of slab, beam, and column stiffnesses; and for the selection of stiffness, carry-over, and fixed-end moment factors for slab-beam elements used in the Equivalent Frame Method. The commentary describes the procedures followed in solving the Design Exampls and explains the use of Design Aids.
