Title: Backprop forces and deflections in flat slabs
Subtitle: Construction at St George Wharf

Ref Code: BR463
Authors: R Vollum

Abstract1: This work investigated the conclusions from the European Concrete Building Project at Cardington that slab deflections can be increased significantly by cracking induced by construction loading. Measurements showed that peak load occurs when the slab above is cast and that the upper floor in a supporting assembly carries more load from casting the slab above than usually assumed. This was investigated at St George Wharf by measuring backprop forces during construction.
