  • New Nautilus: the voided biaxial slab formerrev. 2012 1.1
  • Voided slabs in reinforced concreteLightweight reinforced concrete slab: The necessity of decreasing the weight of RC slabs has various reasons: ARCHITECTURE * Obtain large spans, with fewer columns or walls;  * Avoidance of drop‐beams. ENGINEERING * Self‐weight reduction of the slab in order to: ‐ reduce its deformation ‐ reduce the weight (loads)  transmitted to the foundation ‐ reduce the oscillating mass, thus the movements during an earthquake The solution : to hollow out the slab
  • Precast concrete elements The use of precast elements has certain constraints:TRANSPORT A  flatbed truck  must be used even for small quantities or  single  parts.  This may cause difficult access to jobsites in  city centres and with heavy traficLOGISTICS Precast slabs occupy a  lot of space on  site.  A  crane is mandatory for placing.  In case of polystyrene void formers the  precast parts must be protected from rain. USE The  precast parts are  handled with some difficulty above the fourth floor. Drop‐beams are often required. View slide

  • AdvantagesThe advantages of the new Nautilus void former are numerous: TWO‐WAY  STRUCTURE:  a  two‐way slab will distribute loads on  4  sides (instead of 2  for one‐way slabs),  reducing the  maximum loads on  beams or  mushroom posts. LIGHT:  the  concrete  not essential for the  structure is eliminated.  The  self‐weight of the  slab is limited,  reducing the  loads transferred to the  foundation;  deformation of the structure is reduced.  FLEXIBLE:  it will allow to eliminate  drop‐beams and  create  flat‐soffit slabs without interruptions of large surface. 
  • AdvantagesThe advantages of the new Nautilus void former are numerous: QUAKE  RESISTANT:  the  voids reduce  the  self‐weight of the slab, reducing the seismic mass.  LARGE  SPANS:    larger spans between columns are  possible.  The  number of columns is reduced,  the  result are archutecturally more manageable volumes. COST‐EFFECTIVE:  a  slab with new Nautilus  with the  same static and  seismic characteristics consume a  smaller amount of concrete  and  steel than the full‐concrete equivalent slab: ‐ up to 35% slab weight reduction ‐ up to 50% fewer columns ‐ combined saving effect: 5 to 10% cost reduction potential
  • new Nautilus singleThe  new Nautilus  void formers are  available in  various heights,  all measure 520x520  mm  in plane. The “feet”, are spacers which determin the thickness of the lower slab, and are availablein height between o and 100 mm.

  • Installation Installation of the new Nautilus void formers is very simple and fast: 1. The  new Nautilus  void formers don’t  have an orientation.  Installation is fast  and does not require any special care or attention.  2.  The  spacer strip  makes spacing control between void formers simple and  accurate. 3. It is possible to tread on  the  new Nautilus  void formers.  This keeps the  laying of the upper slab armature really simple. The new Nautilus caissons resist up to 1500 N  pressure on an 80x80 mm footprint for safe job‐ site application.
  • Steps 1-2INSTALLATION 1.  Prepare a slab formwork; lay the welded mesh on spacers. 2. Install the new NAUTILUS void formers, spacing between caissons as per drawing. Use the spacer strip to check correct distance.
  • Steps 3-4INSTALLATION3.    Install all required extra  reinforcement (shear‐ and  moment‐reinforcement);  lay the  upper  slabwelded mesh. 4.  First pouring phase: pour concrete to fill the lower slab, starting from the ribbing, up to the lower side of the new Nautilus void formers. Vibrate the concrete immediately. 
  • Step 5INSTALLATION5.  Second pour  phase:  after completion of the  first  pour  phase,  when concrete  has achieve some strenght, fill the ribbings and complete the top slab as required by the project.
  • TEST RESULTS Cross‐section of actual pour: concrete type: S3 poured in two lifts as per  instructions, vibrated with eccentric poker. NEW NAUTILUS Single H16, lower slab thickness 50 mm No concrete ingress ; lower slab completely filled Typical cross‐section: NEW NAUTILUS Double H32, lower slab thickness 60 mm
  • CalculationSTUDY The new NAUTILUS caissons create voids in a RC slab poured in situ. The condition in shich the new Nautilus void former gives the most advantage is in a two‐way slab configuration.  In  order to have a  two‐way behaviour the  ratio between the  sides of the  slab must be between 1.7  and  1:  beyond this ratio the  behaviour will become one‐way,  and  other methods to reduce slab weight may be more advantageous. SLAB THICKNESS The  first  step  in  the  study of a  full  concrete  slab is to formulate  an hypothesis of the  indicative thickness.  This thickness depends from the  type of structure being studied: Slab on columns d = L / 25 Slab on beams d = L / 30 Waffle slab on columns d = L / 20
  • InertiaSTUDY Once the hypothesis of the minimum slab thickness has been formulated, the voided slab with equivalent charactesistics of resistance and deformation must be identified. A full concrete and a voided slab are compared based on their inertia.  The inertia of the full concrete slab must be calculated, and compared with the voided slab solution. 1 I Ifull = ⋅ 100 ⋅ H2 Iall = full 12 B + 52 The inertia of the voided section is calculated according to the span of the void formers. Based on the inertia values of the voided section is is possible to calculate the thickness of the slab, and  consequently choose the size of dimensions S1, S2 and h.
  • Full vs voided slabSTUDY Here below the comparison between a full concrete slab and an equivalent voided slab. I=225000cm^4/m I=153626cm^4/i I=225920cm^4/m I=422108cm^4/m I=304140cm^4/i I=422417cm^4/m The  thickness of a  voided slab is slightly greater that the  one of the  equivalent full  concrete  slab.
  • Slab supportSTUDY Once the thickness of the voided slab has been established it is possible to calculate the steel  reinforcement. Loads will be divided in two directions: this can be calculated with the Grashof formulae. This calculation considers also the  conditions at the limits. q ⋅ l4 q ⋅ l4 qx = y qy = x k ⋅ l4 + l4 x y k ⋅ l y + l4 4 x
  • ReinforcementSTUDY The reinforcement of a voided slab with new Nautils is typically composed by: ‐ a welded mesh in the lower slab, with spacers to assure the required concrete cover;  ‐ additional reinforcement (bars or grids); ‐ a welded mesh in the upper slab, laid directly on the void formers (which include ribbing on  their upper surface that serve as spacers).

  • Slab profile close to support - beamsSTUDY In the case of a slab and beam system there are typically rather high values of shear stress and  negative moment. To manage these stresses is possible to use void formers of lower height close to the supports in order to increas the resistant section.
  • Slab profile close to support - columnsSTUDY In the case of a voided slab without beams it will be necessary to create  a  full concrete  zone  around the top of the columns (“mushrooms”). The  armature  must be properly calculated in  order to manage shear‐stress and  negative  moment. Geoplast Nautilus h20
