**How do you calculate one way and two way slab?**

How do we calculate a one way or two-way slab? If the L/b ratio is greater than or equal to 2 then it is considered a one way slab. If the L/b ratio is less than 2 then it is considered a two way slab.

### How thick should a concrete foundation slab be?

Generally, concrete residential house and garage slabs are 4 to 6 inches thick. Depending on how much weight the slab will hold, your budget, and local building codes, concrete slabs can be up to 20 inches.

### Which is better one way slab or two way slab?

In one way slab main bars are laid along the shorter span and temprature reinforcement or disribution bars along the long span. One way or two way are not designed that any type of them is better than the other but due to change of loading conditions with change of the length breadth ratio of the slab.
