Abstract—The post-tensioning method is now a days increasing widely, due to its application. By using post-tensioning method one can design the most economic and the safe design. While using this method more precautions has to be made for shear and deflection criteria for the slabs. The design of post-tensioned flat slab can be done by using load balancing and equivalent frame method. For the application of design procedure an office building is considered as a case study. The plan of the office building (G+4) is considered. This building is designed by considering four cases with different floor systems. The quantities of reinforcing steel, prestressing steel, concrete required for the slab, beam and column is calculated for the same and are presented in tabular form. Along with this total cost of the building per square meter is found and comparison of all the four cases with respect to cost is done.
Index Terms—Equivalent frame method, flat slab, load balancing method, post-tensioned, RCC, seismic analysis, strud, staad-pro.
