Abstract: Sequential unconstrained minimization technique (SUMT) is used for the solution of a comprehensive minimum cost design problem formulation. The formulation, based on Indian codes of practice (IS 456-2000), Solutions to the nonlinear programming problem are obtained with an appropriate computer program, This is used for solving a wide range of typical flat slab designs with varying span-to-depth ratios, live and dead loads, different grades of concrete and steel. A related sensitivity study enables the comparison of optimal and standard solutions. The different conditions of flat slabs are analyzed and design by using MATLAB software.
