D2.A.7 Slab or Wall Design
To design a slab or wall, it must be modeled using finite elements. The command specifications are in accordance with Chapter 2 and Chapter 6 of the specification.
Elements are designed for the moments Mx and My. These moments are obtained from the element force output. The reinforcement required to resist Mx moment is denoted as longitudinal reinforcement and the reinforcement required to resist My moment is denoted as transverse reinforcement. The parameters FYMAIN, FC, MAXMAIN, MINMAIN, and CLEAR listed in D2.A.3 Design Parameters are relevant to slab design. Other parameters mentioned in Table 1A.1 are not applicable to slab design.
