Abstract:

In this paper, experimental study on the flexural behavior of Concrete Sandwich Composite slabs were reported. Single point flexure test on three slabs varying in core elements such as providing horizontal and vertical polypropylene sheets to the slab panel. The dimensions of the slabs are 1.00 x 1.00 x 0.15 m. These slabs are casted using self-compacting concrete.The experimental tests include the testing of panels under static loading. Load is applied using a 500kN hydraulic jack. Linear voltage displacement transducers with 50 mm gauge range are used to measure the transverse deflections.The test results includes theultimate load-bearing capacity, load-deflection profiles, typical modes of failure and cracking patterns under constantly increasing the loads were discussed.
