Explain the difference between slab and beam?
|1.||It is a linear structural element where perpendicular loads known as flex load are applied along with the axis.||It is a flexural component that distributes the load horizontally to one or more directions within a single plane.|
|2.||A beam is the most common example of a structural element in bending||While the resistance to bending of a slab is similar to that of a beam, it differs from that of a comparable series of independent beams in continuity in both directions.|
|3.||It is the most direct solution to the most common structural problems of transferring horizontal loads of gravity to the load elements.||A slab is used when concentrated loads result in a perpendicular bending located in the first direction of extension causing torsion in the slab.|
