Capital refers to?

Piyush Singh said: (Sep 3, 2015)  
Drop panel is used for resisting high shear at the column, drop panels have thickness more than the slab thickness and they are mostly used when the span is large or shear load is high.

While column capital is the upper head of the column which is thickened to reduce the punching shear on the column, column capital also reduces the clear span.
