Two-Way Slab Reinforcement Limits per ACI 318-19 with ideCAD

How does ideCAD control Two-Way slab reinforcement limits according to ACI 318-19?

  • Minimum area of flexural reinforcement, As,min is controlled and reported automatically.

  • The ratio of deformed shrinkage and temperature reinforcement area to gross concrete area are greater than or equal to 0.0018. It’s controlled automatically.


Ag = gross area of concrete section, in.2
As,min = minimum area of flexural reinforcement in.2

Minimum flexural reinforcement in nonprestressed slabs

A minimum area of flexural reinforcement is satisfied near the slab's tension face in the span's direction.

As, min=0.0018Ag
