A hollow core slab, also known as a voided slab, hollow core plank or simply a concrete plank is a precast slab of prestressed concrete typically used in the construction of floors in multi-story apartment buildings. The slab has been especially popular in countries where the emphasis of home construction has been on..
River Bridges (KCSB) are steel/concrete composite deck slab bridges developed by JFE Engineering. . River Bridges can be constructed with effective spans ranging from about 10 to 40 meters and skew angles of 45 degrees or more and can be adapted to changes in . Two types of structure: solid type and hollow type
Precast concrete units may be used in conjunction with steel beams. The units may be solid or hollow-core, and with tapered or bluff ends. They are normally prestressed. The beams may also be structurally connected to the slab units to make them 'composite', provided specific detailing rules are satisfied to ensure that the..

The schedule and sequencing differences between the two systems will
flooring system consists of several precast slab units with or without a layer of reinforced concrete topping. The benefits of using hollow-core floor systems are low onsite labour costs, low self-weight . steel-concrete composite slabs under fire using a combination of shell and beam elements10.

The reduction of the shear resistance of hollow core slabs due to deflection of the sup- porting beams .. stresses due to the different deflection of the middle beam and end beams had a minor effect, if .. Middle beam. The middle beam was a composite beam comprising a precast, prestressed concrete
Structural concept. The considered type of the floor slab - beam structural system consists of newly constructed steel and concrete composite beam mandatory connected together with cast in situ or prefabricated floor slabs. Prefabricated prestressed hollow-core floor slabs have been supported on lower flanges of the steel..
Solid slabs are used as structural deck components similar to hollow-core slabs. They can be made in a long-line pre-tensioning facility and reinforced with prestressing strand or cast in individual forms with either prestressing strand or conventional reinforcing bars. They are typically cast in the same position as used in the..

Hollow Core -A hollow core door is a door made up of either plywood or molded composite skin made to look like it is made up of multiple pieces. The molded skins are . Slab or Unit? When replacing your interior doors, you must decide whether or not to replace the door slab or the entire unit (frame, hinges, jambs & stop)
employing composite deck diaphragms was also performed and similar results were obtained . The behavior of a floor slab under in-plane load is therefore assumed to be two-dimensional problem and hence vertical load effects were ignored in this study. 2.5 Finite Element Analysis of Hollow-Core Plank Diaphragms
The Hollow Core slab has a variety of uses, including floors and roofs for buildings and parking garages, decks for piers, and lagging for retaining walls. Cast-in-place, composite concrete topping is highly recommended to provide a smooth, level floor surface that serves as a horizontal diaphragm when properly reinforced

It should be emphasised that the current HC slab production technologies (extrusion or. slip-forming) do not allow for..
Hollow core slabs are a structural floor and roof system with a shallow depth that reduce weight while maintaining structural strength. Fire resistant hollow core slabs allow for better acoustical performance and have better deflection control than wood or steel systems. With faster installation than composite decking, hollow..
