Overview Of Load Paths Along With One And Two Way Slabs

In this segment we are going to introduce you all with the most essential structural concepts and design. The purpose of this video is to highlight the traits of load paths, tributary area for beams and in the final session one way slab and two way slab design. Before proceeding to this video we have to know the basic concept of these structural components.

Load Path
The load path denotes the direction in which every successive load will transfer by way of attached members.

One Way Slab
One way slabs are generally designed with a view to transfer their loads to only two opposite support walls. Structural strength of one way slab is placed in shortest direction.

Two Way Slab
Two way slabs are built in order to transfer their loads to all the four opposite support walls. Structural strength of two way slab is placed in two direction.
