Design of Heavy Duty Concrete Floor Slabs on Grade: 3 PDH

Preview Course: Design of Heavy Duty Concrete Floor Slabs on Grade
This course describes the criteria for the design of concrete floor slabs on grade in buildings for heavy loads. Concrete floor slabs on grade are often subjected to heavy loads in buildings such as wall loads, stationary live loads and moving loads. The entire design procedure is based on a working stress concept. This course will provide the student with the criteria needed to design concrete floor slabs on grade subjected to heavy loads. Design examples are shown to aid in understanding the course material.

SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE OR SKILL OBTAINED

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

      • The steps required to design a heavy duty concrete floor slab
      • How to determine floor slab requirements for wall loads, stationary wall loads and moving loads
      • How to investigate the subgrade and environmental conditions relevant to the design
      • How to determine the modulus of subgrade reaction for various soils

CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a 15 question multiple-choice quiz. The quiz can be retaken unlimited times until a passing grade of 70% or better is earned. This course satisfies 3 professional development hours (PDH) of continuing education.
