#59 Innovative Steel–Timber–Concrete Composite StrongFloor

This project aims to develop a novel structural flooring system covering mid- to long-spans that:

  • minimises material use
  • provides the possibility of fast and modular construction
  • reduces manufacturing and construction costs
  • improves space quality and aesthetic look
  • complies with the requirement of Australian standards and BCA.

The initial phases are an extension of existing experimental knowledge and the development of reliable numerical and analytical models. Later stages of the project will include optimising the floor components.

Researchers on this project include: Prof Tuan Ngo, Dr. Philip Christopher, Dr. Rackel San Nicolas,
Dr. Alireza Chniforush, Khin Sheng Chin.
