In many domestic and industrial buildings, a thick concrete slab supported on foundations or directly on the subsoil, is used to construct the ground floor.

On technical drawings, reinforced concrete slabs are often abbreviated to “r.c.c. slab” or simply “r.c.”. Calculations and drawings are often done by structural engineers in CAD software.

Energy efficiency has become a primary concern for the construction of new buildings, and the prevalence of concrete slabs calls for careful consideration of its thermal properties in order to minimise wasted energy. Concrete has similar thermal properties to masonry products, in that it has a relatively high thermal mass and is a good conductor of heat.
