The finite element method is increasingly used for design of reinforced concrete structures. Threedimensional finite element (FE) analysis can provide more accurate structural analysis, but to use its full strength in daily design a number of critical issues have been addressed. Practical guidelines are provided for detailed design of reinforced concrete slabs. Recommendations are given on linear FE modelling, e.g. regarding geometry, support conditions and mesh density, as well as on the use of analysis results, e.g. regarding stress concentrations, choice of critical sections and redistribution widths for practical reinforcement design.
