In the case of the joist slab, you would end up with these openings that look kind of like this, And the reason that we have those little tapers, is so that we have enough room to get enough of the rebar to be able to go down through these big, long elements that you need just that little bit of extra room to be able to make that go by, because we have a lot more structure going through each one. The whole point about the waffle slab is everything is going in two directions, so each direction of each little piece is actually lower in importance. In this one, there's fewer directions, there's fewer numbers of these joists, therefore each one is more important.
