The structure of this example derives from 1^{st} example by removing the two middle beams.

The aspect ratio for both slabs is ε=L_{y}/L_{x}=12.0/4.0=3.0> 2.0, therefore they can be treated and analysed as two continuous one-way slabs. However, each one of them is supported on four edges and therefore at the up and down supports they behave as two-way slabs. This behaviour will be examined next.
For 1.00 m wide slab strip:
Self-weight: g_{o}=0.15m·1.00m·25.00 kN/m^{3}= 3.75 kN/m, Covering load: g_{e}=1.00 kN/m (given),
Total dead load: g=4.75 kN/m, Live load: q=5.00 kN/m (given).
Thus, the total load is p=γ_{g}·g+γ_{q} ·q=1.35x4.75+1.50x5.00=13.9 kN/m. The bending moment at the support is calculated using table b3, line 1.

One notices that in the middle cross-section, the values of shears [V_{x}] 20.6 and 34.7 kN, are equal to the respective values of the one-way slabs, calculated previously.
Also, shears [V_{y}] extend in an area near the supports with maximum value of 15.0 kN.
In general, at every single position of the diagrams, the value of shear forces and bending moments, obtained from the Slab Results section, is calculated by integrating the stress resultants of finite elements on a section with total width of 1.0 m across the position. The respective value, obtained from the FEM Results section, represents directly the stress resultants of the finite elements. More details are given in the §4.1.1.4.
In this case, the value of shear [V_{y}], in the middle cross-section, is 15.0 kN and 15.3 kN for Slab Results and FEM Results respectively.

Notice that in the middle cross-section, the moments [M_{x}] 15.5 and -27.4 kNm, are equal to the values of the one-way slabs calculated previously.
On the other hand, moments [M_{y}] do exist, 3.6 kNm, but they are insignificant.
