Precast concrete products - Beam-and-block floor systems - Part 5: Lightweight blocks for simple formwork

This European Standard deals with the requirements and the basic performance criteria for lightweight blocks used as formwork during the construction of the floor system. The blocks are used in conjunction with precast concrete beams in compliance with EN 15037-1, with or without cast-in-situ concrete for the construction of beam-and-block floor systems. This European Standard does not deal with blocks made in polystyrene, with or without tong, or combined with different materials where polystyrene contributes to more than 50 % of the mechanical resistance of the block. These blocks are covered by EN 15037-4, Precast concrete products - Beam-and-block floor systems - Part 4: Expanded polystyrene blocks. Examples of typology of floor systems are given in Annex B of EN 15037-1:2008.

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Anforderungen an und die grundlegenden Leistungskriterien für Zwischenbauteile aus Leichtwerkstoffen fest, die bei der Herstellung von Deckensystemen als Schalung verwendet werden. Die Zwischenbauteile werden zusammen mit vorgefertigten Betonbalken nach EN 15037-1 mit oder
ohne Ortbeton zur Herstellung von Balkendecken mit Zwischenbauteilen verwendet. Diese Norm behandelt keine Zwischenbauteile aus Polystyrolhartschaum, mit oder ohne Zange, oder in Kombination mit unterschiedlichen Werkstoffen, bei denen der Anteil von Polystyrolhartschaum an der mechanischen Festigkeit des Zwischenbauteils mehr als 50 % beträgt. Diese Zwischenbauteile sind durch EN 15037-4, Betonfertigteile — Balkendecken mit Zwischenbauteilen — Teil 4: Zwischenbauteile aus

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s). For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document. Eurocodes are taken as a common reference for design aspects.

EN 15037-5:2013 (E) 6 Introduction The evaluation of conformity refers to the completed precast elements which are supplied to the market and covers all the production operations carried out in the factory. For design rules, reference is made to EN 1992-1-1. Additional complementary rules are provided where necessary. SIST EN 15037-5:2013

EN 15037-5:2013 (E) 7 1 Scope This European Standard deals with the requirements and the basic performance criteria for lightweight blocks used as formwork during the construction of the floor system. The blocks are used in conjunction with precast concrete beams in compliance with EN 15037-1, with or without cast-in-situ concrete for the construction of beam-and-block floor systems. This European Standard does not deal with blocks made in polystyrene, with or without tong, or combined with different materials where polystyrene contributes to more than 50 % of the mechanical resistance of the block. These blocks are covered by EN 15037-4, Precast concrete products — Beam-and-block floor systems  Part 4: Expanded polystyrene blocks. Examples of typology of floor systems are given in Annex B of EN 15037-1:2008. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

NOTE The experience shows that lightweight blocks on the market might be classified E or F. 4.3.5 Acoustic properties Acoustic properties depend on the finished floor system (type of blocks, applied elements in upper and/or lower face of the floor, etc.). When required for the product, subclause 4.3.5 of EN 13369:2013 shall apply. For design purposes, and in the absence of measurement results, the method given in Annex L of

EN 15037-1:2008 may be used (airborne and impact sound insulation). 4.3.6 Thermal properties When relevant, the λ90,90 value (thermal conductivity) and the R value (thermal resistance) and the U value (thermal transmittance) of the specified floor shall be declared. The thermal conductivity (λ90,90) shall be measured in accordance with 5.5. For the calculation of the thermal resistance of the floor (R value / U value), the non-rounded λ value may be used. A method is given in 5.6. Another method may be used, provided that the results are equivalent. If the thermal properties are calculated, the calculation assumptions for thermal resistance of floor which are given in Annex F of EN 15037-4:2010 should be used. SIST EN 15037-5:2013

EN 15037-5:2013 (E) 13 4.3.7 Durability The durability of blocks shall be consistent with the building methods used for the construction of the floor system. NOTE For example, EN 335-1 defines classes for wood and wood based materials. 4.3.9 Dangerous substances
