What is RFI in Construction? Full form of RFI is Request for Information. A Request for Information is a standard process in construction to collect information in writing.

What is waffle slab?

Hello Friends! Welcome to our blog. We are Dipak Varsani and Stann Maina. We are Civil Engineer and building manager by profession respectively. We are the authors of Today we want to mesmerise you with this new slab technology in building construction.

What is Waffle Slab? The slab with the holes underneath giving an appearance of waffles is referred to as the waffle slab. The waffle slab is usually used where large spans are required so that the column interfering with space can be avoided and where thick slabs spanning between wide beams are required. Wide beams are used instead of high beams so that the interference of the beam with the future services can be avoided.
Why have a waffle slab? Waffle slabs are relatively lighter and stiffer than their counterpart flat slab, they are also faster to cast than their counterpart. They also use 25% less reinforcement steel and 35% less concrete as compared to the flat slab. These percentages are subject to ch…
