Research on Post-Tensioned Unbonded Prestressed Concrete Hollowed Floor


Article Preview

In order to study the mechanical behaviors of post-tensioned unbonded prestressed concrete hollowed floors, a 1/4 scale post-tensioned unbonded prestressed reinforced concrete hollow slab-column structure model is used to act uniform distributed load on the floor. The test results showed that the load carrying capacity is enough. The points of maximum displacement are at the centers of slabs. By means of the experimental studies and elastic finite element analysis methods, the results showed that post-tensioned unbonded prestressed concrete hollowed floor presents anisotropy with layout of circular-tubes in one way. In direction parallel to layout of hollowed tubes, the continuity of floor is destruction and bending stiffness of slab is weakened. For studying the deformations of slab, it can still be considered continuous cross-slab in two directions.
