### Positioning of Tables on Float Pages  Topic is solved

I want to put tables one after another. But in second page they are with some gap.

%\documentclass[final,authoryear,5p,times,twocolumn,sort&compress]{elsarticle}\documentclass[final,3p,times]{elsarticle}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}\usepackage{booktabs} \journal{NDT\&E international} %for figure at top of blank page\makeatletter\setlength\@fptop{0\p@}%\preto{\@tabular}{\parskip=0pt}\makeatother \begin{document}   \begin{frontmatter}     \title{Paper Title}     \begin{abstract}     \end{abstract}     \begin{keyword}       NDT \sep Data fusion \sep Mechanical parameters \sep Bayesian \sep Uncertainty      \end{keyword}   \end{frontmatter}    \begin{table}[htp]     \caption{Range of parameter values for granite}     \centering     \begin{tabular}{c c} \toprule       Parameter & Range \\ \midrule       v$_{ultrasonic}$(m/s) (Stone Block) & 3694--3885 \\       v$_{sonic}$ (m/s)(Stone Block) & 4508--5332 \\       $\nu$ & 0.2--0.3 \\       $\rho$ (kg/m$^3$) & 2600--2800 \\ \bottomrule     \end{tabular}     \label{table:rangeofparameters}   \end{table}    \begin{table}[htp]     \caption{Prior and Posterior estimates of E (Normal Distribution) in GPa considering sonic and ultrasonic data}     \centering     \begin{tabular}{p{3.5cm} p{2.cm} p{2.5cm} p{2.5cm} p{2.5cm}} \toprule       Parameter & Literature &  1$^{st}$ Update & 2$^{nd}$ Update & 3$^{rd}$ Update\\ \midrule       $\mu$ & --- & 33.20 & 32.70 & 32.28 \\       $\sigma(\mu)$ & --- & 0.66 & 0.54 & 0.44 \\       $\sigma$ & --- &  6.59 &  5.33 & 4.35 \\       $\sigma(\sigma)$ & --- & 0.47 & 0.38 & 0.31 \\       95\% confidence interval for mean & --- & 32.12--34.29 & 31.82--33.59 & 31.57--33.00 \\       $\mu_{pop}$ & 35 & 33.21 & 32.70 & 32.26 \\       $\sigma_{population}$ & 7.5 & 7.25 & 5.89 & 4.80 \\       95\% confidence interval for population mean & 20.3--49.7 & 21.28--45.14 & 23.00--42.39 & 24.37--40.15 \\ \bottomrule     \end{tabular}   \end{table}    \begin{table}[h]     \caption{All acceptable responses for survey}     \centering     \begin{tabular}{p{2.5cm} p{2.cm} p{2.75cm} p{3.25cm}} \toprule       Test method & Literature Knowledge &  Schmidt Hammer & Direct compressive test \\ \midrule       Literature Knowledge  & 1 & (1/2,1,1/3,1/5,7,5,6,3,1/5,1/2)  & (1/8,1/8,1/8,1/9,1/7,1/7,1/8,1/6,1/3,1/7) \\       Schmidt Hammer & Positive reciprocal & 1 & (1/7,1/8,1/5,1/6,1/8,1/9,1/8,1/8,1/3,1/5) \\       Direct compressive test & Positive reciprocal & Positive reciprocal & 1 \\ \bottomrule     \end{tabular}   \end{table}    \begin{table}[htp]     \caption{Proposed Trust Factors for NDT tests used to find Elastic Modulus (E)}     \centering     \begin{tabular}{c c c} \toprule       NDT Test & Weightage (w)	& Value of Trust Factor (T) \\ \midrule       Literature Knowledge & 0.1195 & 1.23 \\       Sonic Testing & 0.1080 & 1.24 \\       Ultrasonic Testing & 0.1149 & 1.23 \\       Direct Compression test & 0.6275 & 0.92 \\ \bottomrule     \end{tabular}     \label{tab:ProposedTrustFactorsE}   \end{table}    \begin{table}[htp]     \caption{Prior and Posterior estimates of E (Normal Distribution) in GPa considering sonic and ultrasonic data including trust factors}     \centering     \begin{tabular}{p{3.5cm} p{2.cm} p{2.5cm} p{2.5cm} p{2.5cm}} \toprule       Parameter & Literature & Prior 2 & Prior 3 & Posterior 3 \\ \midrule       $\mu$ & --- & 33.25 & 32.72 & 32.30 \\       $\sigma(\mu)$ & --- & 1.42 & 1.36 & 1.27 \\       $\sigma$ & --- &  6.89 &  6.58 & 6.19 \\       $\sigma(\sigma)$ & --- & 1.03 & 0.98 & 0.91 \\       95\% confidence interval for mean & --- & 30.91-35.59 & 30.49-34.95 & 30.20-34.40 \\       $\mu_{pop}$ & 35 & 33.24 & 32.73 & 32.32 \\       $\sigma_{population}$ & 7.5 & 8.38 & 8.00 & 7.52 \\       95\% confidence interval for population mean & 20.3-49.7 & 19.44-47.04 & 19.56-45.89 & 19.95-44.68 \\ \bottomrule     \end{tabular}     \label{tab:etrust}   \end{table}\end{document}

I know one option is to use H instead of htp. Is there some better option?

Reason: Code reduced to a proper minimal example (see Board Rules). Has to be done by oneself.

You could use the subcaption package. Below is a code stub.

\begin{table}[h!t]	\begin{subtable}{\textwidth}		\caption{Caption first table}		\centering		%tabular		\label{tab:tab2}	\end{subtable} 	\vspace{20pt} 	\begin{subtable}{\textwidth}		\caption{Caption second table}		\centering		%tabular		\label{tab:tab2}	\end{subtable}\end{table}
