Design and check slabs

After creating any necessary patches, you can determine the top and bottom reinforcement requirements in all the slab item areas that lie outside of the patch areas. Because patch areas are excluded from slab item design, you should create patches before designing slab items.

Note:

Slabs can only be designed/checked after slab design moments have been established from a suitable analysis.

Check an individual slab item

Do one of the following:
To Do this
Check an individual slab from a 2D or 3D view
  1. Hover the mouse pointer over the slab.
  2. If a different entity is highlighted, press the <down arrow> cursor key until the correct reference is shown in the Select Entity tooltip.
  3. Right-click, and from the context menu that appears, select Check Panel.
To Do this
Check an individual slab from the Structure Tree
  1. In the Project Workspace, click Structure tab.

Check all slab items

  1. In the Project Workspace, click Structure tab.
  2. Right click on the Structure branch.
  3. In the context menu, select Check model slabs as required.
