Abstract

In this paper present a study carried out on Crack Pattern and Failure modes of RCC and Brick Composite slabs. The main objective of this thesis is to study replacement of concrete by bricks. The concrete of tension zone has been replaced by Brick in order to reduce weight and cost of the reinforced concrete beams An experimental program is conducted on six simply supported concrete slabs. All six slabs casted in two different groups and every group having three slabs. The first group of slabs are of reinforced concrete slabs and second group of slabs are composite slabs. The Crack Pattern of both groups of slabs compare with each other. The comparative study has been carried out on the Crack Pattern, cracks has been seen by applying four point loading on the both types of slabs and the deflection is also measure by using dial gauge. In this study three Rcc slabs and three Brick composites slabs have been casted of concrete grade M25, and behaviour under four point loading conditions is checked in Structure & Concrete Laboratory of Madan Mohan Malviya Engineering College Gorakhpur. This will include the variation in load displacement graph, the crack patterns, propagation of the cracks, the crack width and the effect of the nonlinear behaviour of concrete and steel on the response of control Slab and the deformed slab.
