In today's construction activity the use of flat slab is quite common which enhances the weight reduction, speed up construction, and economical. Similarly from the beginning conventional slab has got place in providing features like more stiffness, higher load carrying capacity, safe and economical also. For analysis material properties like grade of concrete steel, density, modulus of elasticity, must be defined initially and also various loads like dead load, live load, SDL. In this present work direct approach is adopted for manual design of flat slab and check for punching shear using software. Flat slabs are more vulnerable to punching shear because of absence of beam. Analysis of flat and conventional slab structures has been done using ETABS software.
