Hollow core slabs

Hi

 

Does anybody know of good ways to treat hollow core slabs when analysing a structure?

 

I know that some people model the slabs with correct thickness, defines density = 0, and then defines a load for the dead-weight of the slabs.

 

Opninions?? Is this the best way?

Thanks! :-) This seems to be better than defining density = 0.
