3 Ribbed Slabs

To ensure adequate stiffness against bending and torsion and to allow ribbed slabs to be
treated as solid slabs for the purpose of analysis, EBCS-2 recommends that the following
restrictions on size are satisfied:
Ribs shall not be less than 70mm in width; and shall have a depth, excluding any
topping of not more than 4 times the minimum width of the rib. The rib spacing
shall not exceed 1.0m
1
Thickness of topping shall not be less than 50mm, nor less than 10 the clear
distance between ribs. In the case of ribbed slabs incorporating permanent blocks,
the lower limit of 50mm may be reduced to 40mm.

Minimum Reinforcement

## The topping shall be provided with a reinforcement mesh providing in each

direction a cross-sectional area not less than 0.001 of the section of the slab.
The breadth of ribs may be governed by shear strength requirements. The method
proposed in the ISE manual for the estimation of rib breadths limits the shear
stress in the rib to 0.6 N/mm2 for concretes with characteristic cylinder strength of
25 N/mm2 or more. The required breadth is given by:

V
b= mm
0 .6 d
Where V is the maximum shear force in Newton on the rib considered as simply
supported and d is the effective depth in millimeters. For characteristic cylinder strengths
less than 25 MPa, the breadth should be increased in proportion.
If the rib spacing exceeds 1.0m, the topping shall be designed as a slab resting on
ribs, considering load concentrations, if any.
The function of the flanges with the web shall be checked for longitudinal shear.
The ultimate limit state in longitudinal shear is governed either by the effect of
inclined flange compression (acting parallel to its middle plane) or by tension in
the transverse reinforcement.

the web-flange interface.
If , at the section with M = Mmax , the flange is subjected to a tensile force, the
concrete contribution 0.50 fctd hf .( in the above equation) should be neglected.

2. One way slabs
2.1 Introduction to Reinforced concrete slabs
A reinforced concrete slab is a broad, flat plat, usually horizontal, with top and bottom
surfaces parallel or nearly so. It is used to provide flat surfaces mainly for roofs and
floors of buildings, parking lots, air fields, road ways etc. It may be supported by
reinforced concrete beams (and is usually poured monolithically with such beams by
masonry or reinforced concrete walls, by structural steel members, directly by columns,
or continuously by the ground.

Classification
Beam supported slabs may be classified as one-way slabs main reinforcement in each
element run in one direction only , the loads being carried by the slab in the direction
perpendicular to the supporting beam.
Two-way slabs main reinforcement run in both directions where ratio of long to short
span is less than two.
Others include flat slabs or plates, two-way ribbed or grid slabs etc.
One-way slabs one-way solid slabs
