Structural Performance of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Continuous Slab without Reinforcement
Hong, Geon-Ho;
Slab is one of the most important members in the building structures because it covers the largest area of the building. But, amount of reinforcement in this member is relatively small because of its small supporting loads. And large exposed area in slab can induce the cracks. To improve this characteristics, the new slab system consist of structural deck-plate and fiber reinforced concrete was suggested for improving construction ability and reduction of construction period. Basic concept of this slab system is that structural deck-plate can replace the tensile reinforcing bars and concrete form, and fiber reinforced concrete can replace the temperature reinforcement. But, previous study was limited because it tested only simply supported slab specimens. This study tested various continuous slab specimens to find the applicability of the suggested new slab system without any additional reinforcement. Design concept is that structural design of slab is assumed as simply support slab, but it should keep the negative moment cracks under allowable crack width in service load conditions. Four continuous slab specimens in total were tested for analyzing the flexural strength, stiffness, deflection, crack development and failure pattern. Test results indicated that suggested new slab system appeared to be better flexural capacity and stiffness than normal reinforced concrete slab with negative moment reinforcement. And it can control the cracks under the allowable crack width upto the service and factored loads.
