Abstract: Skew slab structures are frequently investigation used in modern construction in the form of non-orthogonal reinforced concrete slabs supported by skew grid of beams. Skew bridges allow roadway alignments to a huge selection of solutions. Skew slabs contribute to a minimal environmental impact for recent road construction projects. Thus, it is difficult to analyse the skew slab bridges than the right angled bridges. The primary objective of this project is “Numerical Examination of Reinforced Concrete Skew Slab”, is to determine the effect of different arrangement of steel reinforcement in the reinforced concrete skew slabs. For skew slabs, the sides are not orthogonal and so it is a matter of interest to study the effect of different types of reinforcement schemes to arrive at the best arrangement. ANSYS (R.18.1) software was used for the analysis of skew slabs. Except the reinforcement alignment, dimensions are similar in all the skew slabs. For identifying the effective reinforcement pattern in skew slabs, deformation, stress, strain behaviour were studied. By comparing the datas for three types of reinforcement pattern in skew slab, the effective pattern will be observed in pattern having least values in solution. On analysis, the behaviour of different reinforcement pattern for the designed skew slab is studied using ANSYS (R.18.1) and the effective reinforcement pattern is suggested.
