Design of flat slabs to BS 8110 Mr A . C . Shapcott of Horsham asks for enlightenment over the reasoning behind the factors given in Table 3.19 of the Code for the empirical design of flat slabs. He refers in particular to the moment values achieved at the first interior support: It appears that, historically, the slab moment values have been higher (CP114 and CPllO), but now equate to WL/16, the ‘L’ being modified in all cases. I note that the total moment at the joint equates to the old values, but at worst any stiffness analysis of slab alone should approach Table 3.13 values. Verulam
