D. Eurocode 2:2004 Slab Design Principles
The Eurocode 2: 2004 Slab Design Brief is for any slab modeled with finite elements, regardless of boundary restraint conditions.
Slabs are designed for bending in two orthogonal directions for both hogging and sagging moments. Designs for shear or punching shear checks are not included.
Analysis results for plate elements that form a ‘Slab’ are used to generate design moments with respect to the axes of the slab. These moments are then used to generate required reinforcement contours. Note that no account is taken of the requirements for embedment or development of reinforcement.
Code clauses implemented are 184.108.40.206 (1) and (3) (excluding rules for concentrated loads).
Only reinforcement required to resist moment demand is designed. No other clauses are considered (no detailed layout).
