The continuous one-way slab shown below is loaded with a uniform service live load of 80 psf, and a superimposed dead load of 40 psf. Assume the beam width is 16" and use f'c = 5 ksi, and fy = 60 ksi.
a) What is the minimum slab thickness for which a deflection check is not required?
b) Find a suitable slab thickness based on a target ω = 0.10.
