CADS RC Slab Designer provides fast, automatic RC design to BS 8110 for all typical bar arrangements, mesh and slab configurations.
The software is based on the traditional ‘strip’ or ‘equivalent frame’ method where floor slabs are considered as being divided into frames consisting of a row of columns or line supports and slab strips. Designers can select their preferred bar arrangement and quickly produce an accurate estimate for the weight of reinforcement or mesh. The chosen solution can be optimised quickly for minimum cost or rationalised bar spacing. The printing options include summary and detailed calculations, a detailed drawing and a fixing schedule.
