How do we know whether a two way slab is Continuous or Discontinuous along its edges?

Continuous Edge A continuous edge means that the slab is able to transfer load to the adjacent slab through that edge. Consider the above L shape building with three slabs cast monolithically (this is important, because, even if you have a slab adjacent to the first slab the edge would not be continuous if they are …

What is Bending Moment?

To understand the term bending moment we have to understand what is a moment of force. Force: The basic definition of force that we have learned is that force is push and pull. Force, when applied to an object, tends to change its motion or its shape. In structural engineering, we have well-defined cross sections …
