Concrete slabs on grade are a component of almost every construction project, yet their design and detailing requirements are rarely included in the undergraduate engineering education. This SE University presentation provided an overview of concrete slabs on grade, as defined in ACI 360, discussing the factors important in deciding which type best fits the project at hand. Methods of analysis and design were presented through use of several design example problems. Material and subgrade behavior, typical safety factors, detailing considerations, and building code requirements were discussed.
