Two-Way Slab Design Strength per ACI 318-19 with ideCAD

How does ideCAD calculate Two-Way slab design strength according to ACI 318-19?

• Both flexural moment and shear strength is controlled automatically according to 8.5.1.1.

• Dimensions of the cross-section should be satisfy ACI Eq. (22.5.1.2). It’s automatically controlled and users are warned if the rule is not satisfied.

Symbols

Mu = factored flexural moment at section, lb
Mn = nominal flexural strength at section, in.
Msc = factored slab moment that is resisted by the column at a joint, in.-lb
f'c = specified comprehensive strength of concrete, psi
Ac-sh = area of concrete used to determine shear stress, in2
Ag = gross area of concrete section, in2
bw = web width or diameter of circular section, in.
d = distance from extreme compression fiber to centroid of longitudinal tension reinforcement, in.
h = overall thickness, height, or depth of member, in.
s = center-to-center spacing transverse reinforcement, in
γf = factor used to determine the fraction of Msc transferred by slab flexure at slab-column connections

To design two-way slab under flexural moment, two-way slab design strength is provided ΦSn ≥ U. Both flexural moment and shear strength are controlled according to 8.5.1.1.

ΦMn ≥ Mu at all sections along the span in each direction

ΦMn ≥ γfMsc within bslab 8.4.2.2.3 (flat slab)

Φvn ≥ vu at the critical sections defined 8.4.4.1 for two-way shear (flat slab)

Φ is automatically designed according to Strength Reduction Factors per ACI 318-19 with ideCAD.

Moment

Mn is determined according to 22.3 as nominal flexural strength Mn is calculated as shown below. Detailed information: Flexural Strength per ACI 318-19 with ideCAD

Openings in slab systems

ACI 22.6.4.3 is provided when an opening is placed at least 4h from the face of a column, concentrated load or reaction area. Detailed information: Two-Way Shear Strength per ACI 318-19 with ideCAD .
