Note that for loading conditions other than uniform loading, the design professional needs to perform separate calculations. shear Strength. The use of shear reinforcement is generally not feasible for hollow-core slabs and, therefore, the shear strength, particu larly of deep slabs, may be limited to the shear strength of the concrete.

11.4.3, the factored shear force Vu is limited to the lesser of φVci and φVcw, where Vci is the flexure-shear cracking strength and Vcw is the web-shear cracking strength. For simply supported hollow core slabs, the shear cracking strength of the web adjacent to the support usually control the design of the unit, unless the design loading includes heavy, non-uniform loads. The φ value for shear calculations is 0.75. The nominal shear strength provided by concrete (web-shear cracking& ...

hollow core slabs (HCS) are usually precast by extrusion and it is not easy to place stirrups; thus, it is difficult to guarantee shear resistance in some cases. This paper describes an experience using fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) to produce HCS by extrusion to gain shear reinforcement. An experimental program consisting of 26 HCS was developed. Elements were produced and tested in shear according to the following variables: amount of steel fibers (0, 50 and& ...

Ultimate test shear capacities varied greatly due to different geometries, but the test/predicted ratio was 1·09 to 1·17 and the test/design ratio was 1·95 to 2·13, practically doubling the code equation. By comparing the shear loads with Lt, if Lt is divided by 1·5, the predicted and tested shear loads are equal. This paper proposes an equation for prestressed hollow core units manufactured using long-line techniques only. The effect of this on a typical slab design is to& ...

Summary.Web shear failure is one of the numerous failure modes which have to be taken into account in the design of prestressed hollow core slabs. In the early eighties it came out that the traditional design method which is still in Eurocode 2, is on the unsafe side for numerous slab types. The paper describes the procedure which resulted in the design rules adopted in the. European product standard for hollow core slabs. Key words: prestress, hollow core slab, hollow-core slab,& ...

Precast, prestressed hollow core (PHC) slabs are among the most common load bearing concrete elements in the world. They are widely used in floors and roofs of office, residential, commercial and industrial buildings. As no shear reinforcement can be provided due to fabrication restraint, the concrete shear strength is the only source of PHC slab shear capacity. However, in some design situations, typically when large concentrated or line loads are present, shear& ...

Based on previous testing and analysis, it is believed that North American concrete design codes yield conservative shear designs for precast/prestressed hollow-core slabs in the 203 to 305 mm depth range. The objective of this research program is to calibrate the Canadian code shear equations to precast/prestressed hollow-core slabs, through testing a series of full-scale slabs to failure in shear. A total of twelve hollow-core slabs from one slab producer, using two types of.

struction technique. Precast slabs become widely used end of twenty century to get quick construction with high quality. These deeper precast prestressed hol- low slab units are increasingly used in the industrial buildings and office build- ings where large spans of open parking spaces on ground floors are provided with columns spacing modules from 10 m to 17 m. As a consequence the deeper hollow core slabs are designed to resist higher loads and to support the& ...

Abstract. Prestressed, precast hollow-core slabs are used extensively for floor and roofing systems in precast concrete construction in Saudi Arabia. design of these precast structural units is based on ultimate load-carrying capacity of these members. Full-scale load tests were conducted on prestressed precast hollow-core slabs with different shear span to depth (a/d) ratio, which were loaded to failure to ascertain the ultimate load-carrying capacity of these slabs. A total of 15 slab& ...

The effect of flexible supports, i.e. reduction of the shear resistance of the hollow core slabs due to deflection of the supporting beams, has been experimentally studied since. 1990. The results and analysis of ten tests carried out by VTT, Finland, have been pub- lished previously. Due to these tests and parallel tests performed elsewhere it has be- come clear that the reduction of the shear resistance has to be taken into account in design. European standard EN 1168.
