Abstract

Cost reduction in roofs/floors has been achieved through the adoption of alternate techniques like filler slab, which works on the principle of filling a part of concrete in the tension zone with cheaper substitutes. Even though there are sound theoretical bases and proven methods of construction, there has been no systematic analysis of cost-effectiveness such a system can offer for a range of spans, imposed loading and support condition. This paper discusses the details of a cost-effectiveness analysis conducted on two-way filler slabs with Mangalore pattern tiles as filler units. The cost and weight reduction that can be offered by such a system in comparison to the conventional slab for different parameters as listed above are brought out.
