In reinforced concrete construction, the slab is widely used in forming floors and roofs. A slab has a smaller depth in comparison to its span and width. A slab is supported by a masonry wall, column, or beam. The differences between one way and two-way slab are:
|One-way slab||Two-way slab|
|In a one-way slab, support is given by a beam on two opposite sides of the slab.||In this, support is given by beam to all the four sides of the slab.|
|For one-way slabs, the main reinforcement is provided along one direction only||For one-way slabs, the main reinforcement is provided along both directions.|
|The ratio of longer span to smaller span is greater than or equal to 2.||The ratio of longer span to smaller span is less than 2.|
|In this, a slab can bend only in one direction i.e. along in a shorter span.||In this, a slab can bend only in both directions.|
|Loads can be carried along one direction only.||Loads can be carried along with both the directions.|
|Chajjas and verandahs are an example of One-way slabs.||It can be seen in big companies where it is used to construct floors.|
