Load capacities of simply supported concrete slabs:
|Self Weight |
|Imposed Load |
|Total Load||Span |
Imposed loads varies from approximately 1.5 kN/m2 (153 kg/m2) in domestic buildings to approximately 10 kN/m2 (1053 kg/m2) in heavy industrial areas. 500 kg/m2 is typical for office, storage space and similar.
