Full-Scale Test on a Pile Supported Floor Slab – Steel Fibre Concrete Only or in a Combination with Steel
2008 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The Ph. D project “Integrated Design and Construction of Industrial Floors” proceeds after the presentation of a Licentiate thesis covering methods to increase the quality of concrete floors, Hedebratt (2004). The aim for further studies is to develop directions for design and construction of pile supported steel fibre concrete, SFC floors. SFC is common in industrial floor slabs. In pile supported floor slabs also a combination of non-tensioned reinforcing bars and steel fibres have been used. Furthermore, neither Swedish nor European or any other known design guidelines cover steel fibres as the only reinforcement in pile supported floors or structural members.A common engineering advice is to disregard the ground support. The scope is to investigate the possibility to consider steel fibre only design solutions in a safe way and to compare it with a combined solution and as a reference performing full-scale tests and to develop design guidelines. The now ongoing test on a column supported deck emulates a half scale of an industrial supported floor slab but may also be considered to be full scale of a structural mushroom floor for small housing.
