Single Pour Industrial Floor Slabs


The advent of automatically laser controlled screeding machines has led to the use of fibre reinforced concrete, a technical innovation which has changed the design as well as the construction of concrete floors. This publication provides all the information needed by designers and contractors involved in ground bearing industrial floor design, dealing in detail with the design, construction, specification and behaviour of single pour industrial floor slabs. 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.

Single Pour Industrial Floor Slabs clarifies the manner in which ground conditions govern floor performance and classifies soils in such a way that their influence on floor design and construction can be assessed. This includes details of different types of joint, illustrating their construction by a case study. The author explains the different usages of industrial floors and illustrates warehouse storage systems. He covers the way in which these systems apply loading to the floor and provides a design method which allows the user to design floors subjected to point, patch and distributed loads.

The book introduces a new design method in which the designer reduces the loading regime to a single equivalent load which is then used in conjunction with a series of easy to use 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. In addition, the book covers floor flatness and its achievement as well as the long-term behaviour of a floor. 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.
