In the longitudinal and transverse grooves, SL-decks are filled with self-compacting concrete (SCC) having a density of app. 2.400 kg/m3. This creates a series of reinforced ribs protected and stabilized by the lightweight concrete.
In the ends of each slab, a minimum a 200mm solid SCC concrete is casted to ensure a level of shear capacity in the
A minimum of 200 mm massive SCC is casted in the ends of each slab in order to secure a high ability to handle shear forces in the areas where the slabs are supported. If necessary, additional reinforcement can be added to the ends of the slabs.
