Assessment of Stiffness Increase due to Non-Structural Screeds

This paper presents a method of assessment of the stiffness increase due to different types of non-structural screed. The types of screed considered are concrete screeds either floating, unbonded or bonded, which are the types of screed most commonly in use. The proposed model is validated against the results of a large number of tests carried out on difierent types of precast concrete floor construction, both in the laboratory and in the field. R.M.
