ORION 18: HOW TO MODEL AND DESIGN A CANTILEVERED SLAB


Step 1

To model a cantilevered slab, Click the 'Slab' icon in the menu toolbar on the top of the screen. From the 'Slab Properties' dialog box, Click 'Type'. 

Step 2

'Type 12' and 'Type 13' are the slab types for a cantilever. Type 12' is used for the type where the long side is supported while 'Type 13' is used where the short is supported. For this tutorial, select 'Type 12' as our supporting side is the longer side.



Step 3

Next, type the length of the intended slab in the 'L-Cant' box. After selecting a slab type, click point 1, then without releasing the mouse, drag to point 2 as indicated above to model the slab. The design process for cantilever slab is the same as that for normal slab as seen here, with the exception of the ends of the slab strip. For the case above, we will use 'Bob' and 'Cantilever' for 'At Start' and 'At End' respectively under the 'Slab Strip Properties' dialog box.
