Abstract

This paper aims to study the flexural strength and deflection behavior of concrete slab casted
with oil palm shells (OPS) as aggregates and reinforced with geogrid. Effects of oil palm shells
content and amount of geogrid layers in concrete slab towards the enhancement of flexural
strength and deflection were monitored. Data from test results shows that increment in oil palm
shells content will reduce the flexural strength of slab while increment in amount of geogrid can
increase the flexural strength. Both materials portray their potential as replacement for granite
aggregates and steel reinforcement. Slab samples casted manage to fulfill criteria of lightweight
concrete but fail to achieve high strength. Slab casted portrays similar properties and behavior as
conventional steel-reinforced concrete with ductility and strain hardening. By comparing to
design requirement for residential floor based on British Standard, the slab samples show
adequate capacity to cater for both ultimate limit state and serviceability limit, hence can be
adopted in construction of residential building.
