Sample mini-exam #1 - CVEN 345 - Spring 2005

Show the loading on each beam for the two-way floor slab shown below, and solve for the reactions on the beams. Two-way means the loads travel in two directions to get to the nearest beam, unlike one-way action where the loads travel in one direction only. See page 30 in your text for typical two-way slab action. See page 33 for one-way slab action. The load on the floor is 60 lbs per square foot. On the actual exam you will probably only be asked for one of them.

Beams include ADF, AJL, MN, AGM, DJ, and FLN.
