The objective of this research is the development of super thin ultra-light post-tensioned flat plate floor systems by using high performing ultra-light cementitious composites that lead to slender, sustainable structures to remove the limitations imposed by commodity materials on mid- and high-rise construction. This objective will be achieved by investigating the full-scale behavior of these super thin floor systems using high fidelity finite element analyses in terms of flexure, punching shear, long term deflections, and vibrations.
