Stiffness and Economy, Conventional Slab


Bubble Deck is a revolutionary method of virtually eliminating concrete from neutral axis of conventional slab, which does not perform any structural function, thereby dramatically reducing structural dead weight by linking air and steel directly. Bubble Deck slab uses hollow spherical or elliptical balls made by recycled plastic. A Bubble Deck slab has a two-dimensional arrangement of voids within the slabs to reduce self-weight. Key feature of the project is to carry out the design each slab and compare them in terms of which includes stiffness and economy. We will compare these characteristics for better selection of the roof system suitable for proposing for particular project. Through this project we will be able to achieve adequacy on certain parameters like stiffness and economy.
