# Concrete Slab Maximum Wall Load Calculation

The materials most often used to construct load-bearing walls in large buildings are a concrete slab. A concrete slab is a structural element often used to construct floors and ceilings of modern buildings. Make use of this online civil engineering calculator for the concrete slab maximum wall load calculation based on the values of concrete compressive strength, modulus of subgrade reaction, slab thickness.

### Example:

Calculate the concrete slab maximum wall load given that,

Concrete compressive strength fc = 8

Modulus of subgrade reaction k =5

Slab thickness te = 9

#### Solution:

Concrete slab maximum wall load = 9.93 × (8^{0.5 })( 9^{2} ) ( ( 5 / (19000 ( 8^{0.5} )( 9^{3} ) ) ) ^{ 0.25}
