QUESTION: If user is designing a integral slab and since no bearing is used in integral slab construction. How many bearings needs to be provided for the integral slab in RC pier ?


In RC pier to transfer the load from superstructure to substructure it is required to provide a minimum of 2 bearings. For integral  slab by default the program generates the bearings at every 2ft . If the user has to provide the bearings manually then at every 2ft  should be fine.
