At the conclusion of a project developed in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano started in 2013, Daliform Group is proud to announce the publication of an important technical textbook titled:
“Analysis and design of reinforced concrete voided slabs also subject to seismic actions. Using the U-Boot Beton® System”.
The book, published by Dario Flaccovio, is a practical technical manual addressed to all the consultants of the building sector that would like to learn more about the use of two-way voided slabs.
The study includes the results of an extensive experimental program conducted at the Polytechnic of Milan, which highlight the excellent bidirectional response of voided slabs and the efficient performance in the presence of seismic actions. The experimental results here presented are supported by advanced numerical models.
Overall, the results derived from physical and numerical experimentation form a solid basis for the understanding and design of voided slab systems for gravity and seismic loads.
