Load-carrying capacity of lightly reinforced, prefabricated walls of lightweight aggregate concrete with open structure

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The paper presents and evaluates the results of a coordinated testing of prefabricated, lightly reinforced walls of lightweight aggregate concrete with open structure. The coordinated testing covers all wall productions in Denmark and will therefore provide a representative assessment of the quality actually produced. Existing and new formulas for the capacity are evaluated by comparison to the test results and a new model with a good correlation with the test results is presented.
