RIBBED SLABS to BS 8110:1997 (Analysis & Design)

A Ribbed Slab gives considerable extra strength in one direction while a waffle slab gives added strength in both directions. And this is possible only in monolithically cast concrete which is the two-way grid of beams. In comparison to the solid slab, the span limits of ribbed slabs are considerably longer.
