Paper Title:
Study of Shear Capacity in Brazilian Prestressed Hollow Core Slabs
  Abstract

Hollow core slabs have a bold design and can be used in a wide variety of structural systems, performing like floor slabs or wall panels. These slabs are economical due to geometrical and mechanical efficiency of its cross sections, allowing the rationalization of materials consumption (concrete and prestressed strands). The increase of the use of hollow core slabs within the Brazilian construction market has caused a significant boost of production, demanding the assessment of the actual strength capacity of these elements. This paper presents results relative to several hollow core slabs produced in a Brazilian factory, subjected to shear tests according to FIB recommendations. The experimental results were compared with those obtained with the equations from the Guide to Good Practice: Special Design Considerations for Precast Prestressed Hollow Core Floors, published by FIB in 2000.
