Insulating concrete form or insulated concrete form (ICF) is a system of formwork for reinforced concrete usually made with a rigidthermal insulation that stays in place as a permanent interior and exterior substrate for walls, floors, and roofs. The forms are interlocking modular units that are dry-stacked (without mortar) and filled with concrete. The units […]
LSF structures are mainly constructed using screws or nuts & bolts connections. These structures comprise three main components i.e. cold rolled sheets for structure, gypsum boards for the interior walls, and cement boards for the exterior. Sound proof and heat insulation layers are placed inside the walls. These buildings are built with C or U […]
In this type of construction, a part of reinforced concrete walls are prefabricated. The said walls are set at appropriate distance to each other and fixed with metal trusses made of rebars. Usually the ceiling in this system is designed with semi-fabricated slabs, and the thermal insulation ls usually applied on the outside walls.
In this system, the structure consists of specially designed and manufactured pipes that are filled with concrete. In order to increase the shear resistance of the structure a number of shear connectors are welded inside the pipes. Additionally, if required shear walls could be constructed inside the building and the ceiling concrete could be the poured on corrugated plates placed or […]
