a new steel/concrete composite core wall system has been called revolutionary in the design and construction of tall buildings and is now being put into practice in constructing the new 850-ft-tall rainier square tower in seattle. the system uses two steel plates connected by steel spacing ties with the cavity between the plates filled with high-strength concrete.
thin-wall is a structural load bearing, insulated precast building envelope system that features composite action between concrete wythes. the system enables a very energy efficient building with edge-to-edge eps or xps insulation without thermal bridges and uses less concrete than traditional structural wall panels.
timber-concrete composite panels can be used as floor panels or wall panels. either timber panels or beams can be used, and there are many methods of creating composite action between the timber and concrete. precast vs on-site pour. the concrete slab can be poured on-site or precast in a shop environment.
the bautex wall system is a complete structure envelope solution in a single integrated system that is installed quickly and efficiently by a single trade.bautex blocks are forms for creating a grid of concrete columns and beams. the blocks stay in place after the pour to become the enclosure and insulation for the building.
for marine seawalls, bulkheads, sheet piles and retaining walls, pultruded fiber reinforced polymer composite seawall bulkhead retaining wall offer significant advantages over wood, concrete, steel, aluminum and pvc/vinyl sheet pile systems. lee composites also markets a fiberglass composite marine piling system, designed for navy fender piers
reinforced concrete slab systems on steel decks decking can serve as form, shoring and finished surface table ii composite slab loads for type of deck shown in figures 1 and 2, all gages floor details for sheets placed perpendicular to wall and parallel to wall, and decks of various thicknesses
in addition, more in-depth research results will be presented on one of these composite systems, consisting of partially-restrained steel frames with composite reinforced concrete infill walls. the paper concludes with a summary of probable future design provisions for these composite systems.
architectural precast concrete panels by metal stud crete are lighter weight and greener when fabricated with recycled steel and locally extracted materials on site, or in a precast concrete panel plant close to your project. this time-saving architectural concrete wall construction process can be specified in any concrete color or texture.
a lightweight composite wall panel having a solid concrete core used for quick assembly of interior and exterior walls. ecoboard. a thin and durable fibre cement board with multiple applications in construction such as walls, roofing, ceiling, panels and many more. a reusable and space-saving system for builders and users.
hk ties minimize the energy draining effects of thermal bridging experienced when metal ties or solid concrete sections are used to connect the concrete wythes of sandwich panels through the insulation layer. the use of hk low-conductivity ties results in a sandwich panel with maximum thermal performance.
a radically different shear-wall core system for simpler and speedier construction of steel-framed high-rise office buildings is about to make its debut. the coupled steel-plate composite wall
precast non-composite. precast non-composite concrete wall panels have many advantages over the other two types, including consistent quality, speed of construction, and high strength. additionally, precast concrete wall panels are a sustainable building option, offering durability, reduced moisture and air
a new steel-concrete composite high-rise core wall system is revolutionizing the design and construction of tall buildings. the system uses two steel plates connected by steel spacing ties with the cavity between the plates filled with high-strength concrete.
epitome composite foundation walls from composite panel systems cps provide a highly insulated, fire-resistant alternative to poured-concrete foundation walls.
precast concrete wall systems offer a wide variety of shapes, colors, textures, and finishes to the designer. as a result, the assessment of samples is a key component in the use of precast concrete. the majority of the review and approval process is conducted at the precast plant prior to precast panel production. this assessment is in
a unique foundation wall system by composite panel systems of eagle river, wis., allows builders to construct basements in a matter of hours, complete with air and moisture barriers, top plates
military housing construction by metal stud crete - msc is a structural, composite wall panel system combining regular hardrock concrete, approximately two inches thick on the exterior, and standard light-gauge steel framing on the inside.
thermomass system sc is a patented insulation system designed to create a structurally-composite concrete sandwich wall in both plant precast and site-cast tilt-up applications. the system is unique in that it forces the two wythes or layers of concrete to act together structurally, creating a thinner panel.
