Title: Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete panels
Subtitle: Review of behaviour, and developments in assessment and design

Ref Code: BR445
Authors: S Matthews, N Narayanan and A Goodier

Abstract1: Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) panels are widely used in mainland Europe but serviceability problems have occurred in the UK with some panels designed and built before 1980. This paper describes: concerns about the performance of RAAC roof panels designed before 1980, laboratory testing of RAAC roof panels after 20 years' service, and newly fabricated panels, mechanisms influencing in-service behaviour, design guidance in prEN 12602, and testing RAAC panels fabricated to the new guidance.
