Design and Construction of Concrete Floors Second Edition Book Excerpt:

Concrete Floors still form one of the most common structural elements in construction today. However, floors are responsible for more user complaints than any other building element. A floor must be designed around a user's needs, whether industrial or domestic but it also must comply with the correct standards such as floor flatness and structural strength. This book points the way to good practice by providing an introductory guide to the design and construction of concrete floors. Aimed at designers, civil and structural engineers, contractors and engineering and architectural consultants, this new edition brings the reader up to date with the latest developments and principles of floor design. * Demonstrates how to successfully design and build concrete floors by drawing from a wide range of global experience *Based on US, British and European construction standards *Updated to include the latest developments in floor design and construction

Design and Construction of Concrete Floors Book Excerpt:

This guide to the construction and design of concrete floors covers both British and American standards. In a logical sequence, the author considers classification of floors by usage before dealing with design, construction and floor finishes. Useful as an ideal first book for designers working on floor projects, the text also stresses the need to design floors according to the owner's specific requirements. A comprehensive glossary and detailed appendices are also included.

Single Pour Industrial Floor Slabs Book Excerpt:

Single pour industrial floor slabs provides all the information needed by designers and contractors involved in floor design. The design, construction, specification and behaviour of single pour industrial floor slabs are all dealt with in detail. The properties of fibre reinforced concrete are explained as well as the way such materials can be placed quickly and conveniently by laser-guided screeding machines. The manner in which ground conditions govern floor performance is clarified and soils are classified in such a way that their influence on floor design and construction can be assessed. Details of different types of joint are also included and their construction is illustrated by a case study. The different usages of industrial floors are explained and warehouse storage systems are illustrated. The way in which these systems apply loading to the floor is covered and a design method is provided which allows the user to design floors subjected to point, patch and distributed loads. A new design method is explained in which the designer reduces the loading regime to a single equivalent load which is then used in conjunction with a series of design charts. By this means, the structural design of an industrial floor is reduced to a simple procedure which engineers will find intuitive. Case studies are used to explain the design and the construction processes from concept to construction. Floor flatness, its achievement and the long-term behaviour of a floor are also covered. Single pour industrial floor slabs is a comprehensive guide which all those involved in industrial floors will find invaluable as a single source of data for single pour floors.

Advances in Concrete Slab Technology Book Excerpt:

Advances in Concrete Slab Technology documents the proceedings of the International Conference on Concrete Slabs held at Dundee University on April 3-6, 1979. This book discusses the influence of steel fiber-reinforcement on the shear strength of slab-column connections; sulfur-treated concrete slabs; yield line analysis of orthotropicaly reinforced exterior panels of flat slab floors; and behavior of flat slab/edge column joints. The design of multiple panel flat slab structures; structural behavior of floor slabs in shear wall buildings; shrinkage and cracking of concrete at early ages; and slab construction for HAB system modules are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the direct finishing of concrete slabs using the early age power grinding technique; application of vacuum dewatering to in-situ slab production; retexturing of concrete slabs; and fatigue resistance of composite precast and in situ concrete floors. This publication is a good reference for students and individuals concerned with the practices and research relating to slab technology.

In situ Concrete Industrial Hardstandings Book Excerpt:

This book presents the first single source of detailed guidance for designers, specifiers and constructors of in-situ concrete industrial hardstandings. Despite the fact that in-situ concrete is used commonly as the construction material of industrial hardstandings, little guidance is available to the designer. In the past, industrial hardstandings have been engineered by adapting the methods and materials used in highways and industrial ground supported floors, often leading to the inappropriate use of materials and construction methods.
