Question
Assalam-o-allaikum sir.
sir i want to ask that is sap whenever i design slab along with beam there is always error that beams are not fulfilled capacity check or not designed error what should i do? actually i want i want slab on isolated beams not monolithically built beams

Answer
Arslan

I suggest you to take a modification factor for stiffness of the slab like 25%. If it doesn't work model the beam first and the apply slabs between beams. Don't forget modification factor of the slab, to ensure that the beam remain effective without the slab.
