Experimental Investigation of Behaviour and Shear Strength Capacity of LSRC Slab
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an experimental investigation of the shear strength and behaviour of lightweight sandwich reinforced concrete (LSRC) slabs. Eight tests were conducted on four slabs, one solid and three LSRC slabs. Based on the tests, LSRC slabs exhibited similar behaviour to the equivalent solid slab. There was a 15% reduction in the shear capacity of LSRC slab compared to the solid slab of identical height. When compared against the predicted shear capacity based on current design codes, the shear capacity of the tested LSRC slabs was greater than the code-based design capacity of the solid slab.
