The basis of the ACI Building Regulations for slabs supported on four sides is covered in this paper. Factors of equivalent uniformly distributed loads are determined for use in calculating bending moments and shears in each direction of the slabs and supporting beams. With these factors, the design of slabs with any degree of rectangularity or variation in adjacent panels may be handled in the same manner as in one-way construction. A minimum thickness formula is establlshed based on limiting deflection to definite ratios of the span consistent with all cases of rectangularity and continuity.
