Filigran Trägersysteme

Great interest in concrete components with lattice girders

In February, Filigran Trägersysteme GmbH & Co. invited to the seminar series on “Filigran building components in accordance with Eurocode 2”. The seminars which took place on five dates in the cities of Hanover, Leipzig, Fürth, Bad Soden and Melle were attended by about 500 planners and staff members of precast concrete plants. In the first speech, Dr.-Ing. Johannes Furche of Filigran informed that all national technical approvals of Filigran have been adapted to Eurocode 2 in the meantime. As far as lattice girders are concerned, the approvals are still necessary, since they contain supplementary or even different requirements to the reinforcement steel standard DIN 488. The erection state is also governed by the approvals in a binding manner. Dipl.-Ing. Ulrich Bauermeister explained this state comprehensively, and he finally presented his new design program FiMo for the determination of permissible erection spans. Furche and Bauermeister alternately explained the final state of a Filigran slabs. They referred to their own paper “Elementbauweise mit Gitterträgern nach Eurocode” (semi-precast element construction with lattice girders in accordance with Eurocode 2) published in BetonKalender 2016. The VeriFi design program for the verification of shear force of semi-precast slabs was explained in detail and offered to Filigran’s customers for usage. The installation of precast slabs with lattice girders on flat slabs requires the knowledge about the load-bearing behavior as well as the necessary punching shear verifications. Dr.-Ing. Marcus Ricker of Halfen gave a lecture on this application area. He compared the resistance of different punching shear systems and referred to the highest degree of punching shear resistance of current approvals granted for FDB II Filigran punching shear reinforcement. In case of asymmetrically loaded supports load increase factors must be taken into account. Only for floor plans with support distances of less than 25 % between each other, the overall increasing factors of b = 1.1 up to 1.5 can be applied. For all other...
