Voided concrete flat plate slab systems, which have been used for many years in Europe and other parts of the world, are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. because of many inherent benefits. This paper presents information on these benefits as well as requirements for serviceability, flexure, and shear. Also included are discussions on vibration and fire resistance.
