Comparitive Study of Conventional Slab and Flat Slab using ETABS

Kapil Kakad, Harshal Patil, Suraj Rahate, Shweta Motharkar


In today’s construction activity the employment of flat block is kind of common which boosts the load reduction, speed up construction, and economical. Similarly from the beginning conventional slab has go it place in providing options like a lot of stiffness, higher load carrying capability, safe and economical additionally. because the advancement era began follow of flat slab becomes quite common. In the present dissertation work a G+7 residential multi-storeyed building having flat block and standard block has been analysis is done using ETABS software.


Keywords: Flat slab, Conventional slab, Comparison, ETABS, Economical
