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/5/. The aim for further studies is to develop directions for purchasing, 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 only the reinforcement in pile supported floors. A common engineering advice is to disregarding 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 guideline's also considering the actual ground support. The Falling Weight Deflectiometer is a promising method testing the ground support.
