This of 1.15 kN/mm2. Panels have failed by

 

This gives an elastic modulus of 0.75
kN/mm2. In type 1 panels when the load is increased from 100 kN to
200 kN, the panel has shortened by 1 mm, giving an Elastic modulus of 1.15
kN/mm2. Panels have failed by crushing. Average strength of 100mm
thick panel is 4.06N/mm2. When the height increases the slenderness
increases. Height of panels tested were 2400mm in height. The failure load was
less than that of the shorter panel, giving some contribution from buckling
towards the failure, in addition to crushing, since the panel is having a
slenderness ratio of 24.(Fernando et al., 2017)

In construction field mainly engineers
focus on economic side, the efficiency and environmental side.(Mateus, Neiva, Bragança, Mendonça,
& Macieira, 2013) When we
consider the terrace housing it is a good solution for the growth of the pollution
but it can be fulfilled more effectively by using light weight load bearing
panels. EPS based concrete panels give more advantages for constructing houses.

Mainly concrete wall panel system for
terrace housing is a more matured system and are normally able to fence off
defects such as cracks and water seepage. So that we can assure that it is more
applicable for terrace housing. And also strength, fire resistance, water
tightness and sound insulation are the main properties that can be have by
using light weight concrete for terrace housing. When we get this kind of
housing those things are more important because for a public housing scheme
should have those qualities.

There is a research that checked the
sound insulation index of a concrete wall panel by sound reduction index
theory. The reliability of the method has been checked by by testing it on two
types of precast panels: a thermal insulating panel and a light weight-core
panel, both 1.79 m wide and about 8 m long. According to that sound insulation
is higher in light weight panel.(Piana, 2016)

On the other hand environment friendliness,
less installing and finishing time, cleanliness, more spacious, less cost and
best finishing surface can be had from light weight load bearing panels for
terrace housing.

As a material we use fly ash for
concrete mixture. From that also we can have some more qualities to the
concrete panels. Using fly ash in concrete reduction of cement use and
subsequently of CO2 emissions, replacement of cement by fly ash
improves the workability and durability of concrete, reduces hydration heat and
helps in the development of long term compressive strength (at ages > 90
days). The use of fly ash leads to a decrease in chloride ion permeability. Fly
ash is a by-product of thermal power plants. So using an industrial by product
helps to avoid environmental pollution.(Xu, Jiang, Xu, & Li, 2012)
