Design and Construction of the Slab with Novel Filled Material
A new cast-in-situ slab which is filled with novel filled material (EPS-block) consisting of disused expanded polystyrene plastic granule, cement and building cementing powder is invented. EPS-block with perfect centrosymmetric torus shape is very suitable for filling into two-way slabs. It breaks a new path to use disused expanded polystyrene foam, and reduces environment pollution greatly. Through the practical study of the slab with EPS-block, the appropriate construction method is found out, and the dependable construction technique is afforded for further development of the slab with EPS-block.
