Dincel Case Study - More Than Just Formwork

16 Sep 2021 12:17 PM | Anonymous

The composite structural behaviour of Dincel 275 wall verified by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to AS3600-2018 (Appendix B)

It was found that Dincel 275 with it’s unique ring webbing provides significant benefits against a range of structural actions.

Testing was completed with the following infill types:

  • Plain mass concrete
  • Macro synthetic fibre (BarChip) reinforced concrete
  • Steel bar reinforced concrete

Flexural Testing

  • Dincel 275 shell provides additional flexural capacity, opening up the possibility for fibre reinforced basement/retaining walls (such walls have already been designed within Australian projects).
  • Dincel 275 walls can be backfilled 24 hours after concrete infill (when suitably braced)

Stiffness Testing

  • Reinforced Dincel 275 offers fully ductile behaviour (μ=6), allowing for enhanced earthquake/wind design to AS3600 and NZS 3101.
  • Effective flexural rigidity (lateral stiffness) not reduced compared to conventionally formed counterpart.

Shear Testing

  • Interface shear capacity is comparable to a conventional concrete wall.
  • The confinement offered by Dincel 275 wall enhances shear capacity.
