This study’s main target was to analyze and design rectangular edges supported in two ways 1 solid slabs by using ES EN 1992-1-1:2015. Slab design is often carried out either manually or with 2 the use of design and analytic software. The researcher sees that some software cannot accept some 3 countries’ standard codes. For example, currently in Ethiopia analysis and design of two-way solid 4 the slab is done using a readily available Excel sheet template. But working with this might have many 5 problems, firstly the structure that is already analyzed by SAP or SAFE or any other international 6 a software application that uses international codes but which cannot design structure using ES EN 7 1992; for instant euro codes and designed by excel sheet can create failure and uneconomical analysis 8 and design result. In this paper, the slab is designed and analyzed based on the chosen concrete grade, 9 chosen reinforcement bar diameter, chosen steel grade for design and analysis of slabs calculations 10 like load, moment, shear, and deflection checking using the moment coefficient method for analysis 11 and design and Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 for coding. All input values are given by the International 12 Standard units are also used to represent output values. Using manual calculations delays time 13 and mostly the result is not correct. But using this Computer program can increase computation 14 accuracy and save time. The procedure the researcher followed is, first the manual calculation has 15 been done and then SADSE2021 has been done. The result is that both are 99.9 percent identical, and 16 the disadvantage of this method is that it cannot be used to determine the detailed drawing.
