Material and structural design aspects of a prefabricated balcony of lightweight concrete
The main goal of this research is to design a lightweight prefabricated balcony, with the use of lightweight concrete. The quality concerning structural, aesthetic and durability aspects of the prefabricated balconies should remain the same, but with a reduced density of the concrete mixture to save weight.
During this research a lightweight concrete mixture design is made and experiments are done to determine the characteristics of this mixture. Also the interaction between the designed lightweight concrete mixture and reinforcement bars is tested in order to be able to make a structural design.
