Ábaco descolgado

Un Drop Slab o "Abaco decolgado" en español, es un recurso constructivo en el que el forjado (slab) tiene un resalto (drop) en su cara inferior, en un área donde debajo hay un soporte estructural (column). Es un recurso para aumentar la resistencia a punzonamiento del forjado.
Adjunto referencias con imágenes tanto en inglés como en español.

Un cordial saludo,
