Abstract:
In reinforced concrete construction, flat plate frame systems feature slabs supported directly by columns without the use of beams, drop panels, or column capitals. Flat plates are widely used and often preferred due to economical, functional, and architectural benefits. Some of these advantages include simplified formwork, which reduces installation time and material costs; reduced story heights, which decreases construction costs; and general aesthetic appearance.
