Abstract

The flat slab is gaining popularity among architects. The flat plate slab provides a way for
architect to achieve completely flat ceiling with no beam protrusion. There is also improvement
in the construction speed and cost savings from using this system which requires only simple
formwork. But when load acting on the slab is large or clear span between columns is more
so it is required to increase the slab thickness; hence the self –weight of slab is increased due
to increased volume of slab and also more amount of steel is required to resist this increased
weight of slab. Voided slabs eliminate concrete where it isn’t needed and the subsequent weight
reduction due to this eliminated concrete makes longer span possible. In this study the design
process for flat plate slab is compared with voided slab lightened with U-Boot Beton through
a design comparison of total slab area 40m by 40m having panels of 10m by 10m and also
the deformation of both type of slabs is analysed by using ETABS software.
