    Abstract: Voided slab construction is a way of effectively removing concrete from middle section of a RC slab which has not a structural function, thereby reducing structural dead weight. Voided slab construction has advantages such as reducing self-weight, Cost efficiencies and fast Construction. However, floor stiffness of voided RC slab is less than its s... Show More
