Parametric Study of Thermal Conductivity of Reinforced Concrete Slab
This paper presents a detailed parametric finite element study predicting the through-thickness thermal
conductivity of reinforced concrete slab. The influence of three main structural parameters are investigated, which are: the
concrete slab thickness, the steel bar diameter, and the spacing between two adjacent bars aligned in the same direction. The
steel bar diameter found to be the dominant factors that influences the thermal conductivity of the slab
