QUESTION: hi
the problem is that i can not model the slab, because i can not define it's cross section in the software. when i use:
define - slab properties
there is no option to define a cross section like the one shown in the picture. the available types are:
slab, drop, stiff, mat, footing
that their input can only be the thickness
and
waffle, ribbed
that are not suitable for my slab

regards

ANSWER: Dear sirous

Are you friendly with ansys? I suggest you to try it instead of safe.

QUESTION: Dear Mr. Esmailzadeh Hakimi
the last time i was using sap2000 and your suggestion was using safe! but thanks anyway for your time and suggestions.
I wish you great success
best regards

Answer
Dear Sirous

Sorry about my change in my idea to help you. Safe can be followed by you if you can make a good model to model the inclined section.  Since I thought that it would be a bit difficult for you to do , I suggested the ansys. But with safe you have to make significant sections to model the slab. If you have problem with it please contact me by mobile.\
