Title: Lessons Learned - Swedish Design and Construction of Industrial Concrete Floors
Author(s): Jerry Hedebratt, Johan Silfwerbrand
Appears on pages(s): 75-92
Keywords: Long term studies, design criteria, pile supported floors, steel fibre concrete, damages, integrated design and construction.
Abstract:Long term studies on several industrial floor productions show where typical damages occur, highlighting common design and construction flaws. Development of the building process has brought new demands in the exaggerated hunt for low cost and profit; often the purpose of building floors is lost in the process. The main part of the pile supported slabs in this study was cast with reinforced steel fibre concrete. These floor slabs is investigated for damages. After a few years of usage a detailed study was made on floors that were completed the preceding 5 years before 2006. Now in 2012 a follow up-study is made. Possible ways of increasing the quality and the experience with new Swedish recommendations from 2008 are discussed.
