Duraflex™ Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Floors
What are the Requirements?
SFRC floors are the new norm for warehousing and factories. The reason being, SFRC Floors are preferred over the conventional RCC Floors is the toughness ( energy absorption capacity ), ductile behavior, crack, and impact resistance of the floor.
When the project duration is limited then SFRC floors help to reduce the overall construction duration by minimizing the reinforcement preparation time, labour management, and overall costs. Consumption of steel with Duraflex™ steel fiber is comparatively less than Rebar.
DURA Pro( Design Assistance Software )
Durapro is a specially designed software developed by Kasturi Metal Composites for designing slab-on grad flooring as per TR-34, ACI 360 standards. It is to help our customers to provide optimum SFRC solutions by replacing partially or completely removing REBAR.
Various Parameters are considered for designing such as sub-base properties, concrete mix design, loading conditions such as UDL point load, rack load, type of steel fiber reinforcement, slab thickness, MHE movements, load transfer reinforcement at joints and also safety factor.
How we do it ?
Duraflex™ Steel Fibers in concrete can absorb and redistribute the loads (or energy) so that the SFRC will still be able to bear loads even after the formation of cracks. In fact, SFRC has a ductile behavior or toughness and therefore, that surplus of flexural capacity from the plastic phase (post-crack ductility) can be used for the design of structure when deformation must be controlled. It is the reason why, for the same thickness, an SFRC slab on the ground can support higher loads than a conventional concrete slab.
