- Engineering considerations, loads, soil support system, concrete mix
- Moisture emission and related issues, curling considerations, surface tolerances
- Preparation, placing and finishing slabs-on-ground
- Slab-on-ground thickness design. Design examples for distributed, rack post, and lift truck loading; reasonable assumptions when you don’t know
- Designing for shrinkage, minimizing restraint to movement: joint spacing, reinforcing options to limit out-of-joint crack width development
- Two course slab systems
- Floor joints and load transfer
- Reinforcing: conventional deformed bar, welded wire and fibers
- Curing, surface treatments, liquid densifiers, polishing
- Plans and specifications: what the engineer should provide and what the contractor should expect
