Curves are presented showing maximum moments in uniformly loaded two-way slabs as calculated under, two different basic assumptions. These are : (1) the slabs are isotropic and homogeneous, and (2) the slabs are anisotropic and nonhomogeneous when designed by AC1 Methods 1 and 2.9 A glance at the figures shows the different edge conditions, over the full range of variation of side length ratios. Consideration is limited to rectangular slabs supported on all four sides.
