In principle, BubbleDeck® slabs acts like solid slabs. Designing is consequently like for solid slabs, just with less load corresponding to the reduced amount of concrete. Thorough investigations according to Eurocodes are made at universities in Germany, Netherlands and Denmark, concluding that a BubbleDeck slab acts like as a solid slab.
It is important to emphasize the differences in static calculations between different hollow slabs. While a true biaxial slab as the BubbleDeck system must be calculated as a solid slab, ribbed slab systems, like the U-boot system, consisting of a grid of orthogonal "I" beams, must be calculated as beams.
The BubbleDeck® technology is directly incorporated in national standards, such as the CUR in the Netherlands.

Famous quotes containing the word theory:
“[Anarchism] is the philosophy of the sovereignty of the individual. It is the theory of social harmony. It is the great, surging, living truth that is reconstructing the world, and that will usher in the Dawn.”
—Emma Goldman (18691940)
“The great tragedy of sciencethe slaying of a beautiful theory by an ugly fact.”
—Thomas Henry Huxley (18251895)
“The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor Square.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
