Concrete is often used for industrial floors that are designed to withstand static and dynamic loads as well as the degradation caused by operations and the environment.
Industrial floor must be properly designed for resisting point and distributed loads due to shelves and vehicles present on the floor. Seismic action transmitted by shelves must be considered in seismic areas.
Shrinkage phenomena play a major role since they provoke early age cracks that can be controlled by contraction joints that are likely to damage due to wheel crossing.
Another important issue is represented by the top finishing layer that had to be properly designed to resist abrasion.
Main scope of the Task Group is to briefly describe the most important issues in concrete technology for industrial floors, give relevant references to important literature, describe important design premises, give guidance to potential improvements and maintenance. Some attention will be also devoted to refurbishing of existing floors
