Abstract:
One of the most recent developments in reinforced concrete construction is the type of flat slab or girderless floor. While this type is in its infancy as yet, examples of it are nevertheless sufficiently numerous to be more or less familiar to all building designers. The absence of beams, the increase of headroom resulting therefrom, the low cost of centering, and the comparatively small amount and simplicity of the steel reinforcement, unite to make this system desirable for many buildings and relatively low in cost.
