Abstract

This paper presents the overview on structural behaviour of precast lightweight concrete sandwich panel. In Malaysia, demand of affordable housing is increasing due to increasing number of population. Precast concrete sandwich panel is an alternative solution to the conventional construction method due to its ease of construction. The question arises on how to develope a precast panel which is lightweight but with higher strength to sustain the applied load. This paper aims to provide some findings from previous reseach in this field especially on the panel's structural behaviour subjected to eccentric load. It is hoped the overview on this subject matter could be used as guidance for future research on developing a lightweight sandwich panel system in low to medium rise building construction.
