    LOW COST RIGID PAVEMENT DECK SLAB CONSTRUCTION USING REINFORCED PRECAST CONCRETE
    Vishal Shinde*, Sarjerao Ahirrao, Rakesh Kumar

    This paper aims to point out the use of precast dense concrete rigid pavement slab deck construction using precast dense concrete trapezoidal reinforced beams, precast reinforced marble mosaic tiles and plaster of Paris. While application of full-depth precast bridge deck panels may be appealing because of an accelerated construction schedule and improved safety conditions, corrosion of steel reinforcement is a major factor affecting the structural durability of precast panels and overall serviceability of a bridge deck. Building methodology for low cost housing is highlighted by replacing monolithic slab by hollow precast concrete slab completing RCC slab, flooring and ceiling plaster at time using above mentioned precast members. This technique not only achieves economy but also saves time of construction if compared with traditional reinforced cast in-situ concrete slab. However present technique is limited to 3.0 m clear span for beams. This slab would also increase sound and heat insulation due to hollow slab. This study reveals that cost of slab construction is reduced by 30%. Further this study can be very useful for mass housing in developing country like India.
