INTRODUCTION
Purpose of Manual
Theapplicationanddesignofprecast,prestressedhollowcoreslabsissimilartothatofotherpre-stressed members. However, there are situations which are unique to hollow core slabs either be-cause of the way the slabs are produced or because of the application of the slabs.For special situations, hollow core producers have developed design criteria and conducted in-housetestingtoverifythattheirapproachesarevalid. Infact,thereisconsistencybetweenthemanytypesofhollowcoreslabsavailable. Thepurposeofthismanualistobringtogetherthosethingsthatare common, that are verified by test and that can be universally applied to hollow core slabs. Be-causetherearedifferences,sometopicscoveredwillalsopointtothedifferenceswhereclosercoor-dination with the local producer is required.ThismanualwaspreparedbyComputerizedStructuralDesign,S.C.,Milwaukee,WisconsinwithinputanddirectionfromthePCIHollowCoreSlabProducersCommittee. Additionally,thefireandacoustical sections were prepared by Armand Gustaferro of The Consulting Engineers Group, Inc.,Mt.Prospect,IllinoisandAllenH.ShinerofShinerandAssociates,Inc.,Skokie,Illinois,respective-ly. All reasonable care has been used to verify the accuracy of material contained in this manual.However, the manual should be used only by those experienced in structural design and should notreplace good structural engineering judgment.
Scope of Manual
This document is intended to cover the primary design requirements for hollow core floor androof systems. In instances where the design is no different than for other prestressed members, thePCIDesignHandbookandtheACIBuildingCodeshouldbeconsultedformorein-depthdiscussion.For the architect or consulting engineer, this manual is intended as a guideline for working withhollowcoreslabs,aguidefortheuseandapplicationofhollowcoreslabsandanindicationofsomeof the limitations of hollow core slabs. For the plant engineer, the manual will hopefully presentsome backup and reference material for dealing with everyday design problems.
