Abstract: Filler slab technology is an innovative and cost effective technology where the dead load of slab is reduced by replacing the concrete with filler material. The concept behind the use of filler-slab technology is to reduce a substantial portion of concrete in the tension zone, since all the concrete in the tension zone does not contribute to the tensile properties. This concrete is replaced with lightweight, inert and inexpensive filler without compromising with the quality and structural stability of the structure. Two-way slab is designed; the filler blocks are placed between the reinforcement spacing by providing a cover of 20mm. The filler materials are granite dust and foundry sand. This filler slab is analyzed using STAAD.Pro and ANSYS software. Filler slab is compared with the conventional slab of same size. This study describes the Structural behavior and cost effectiveness of filler slab when compared to the standard slab. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
