Thermoplastic composite structural insulated panels (CSIPs) for modular panelized construction

N. Uddin, A. Vaidya, U. Vaidya and S. Pillay,     The University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA

Abstract:

Modular panelized construction is a modern form of construction technique in which precast multifunctional structural panels are used. In this technique, precast panels are fabricated in the manufacturing facility and are transported to the construction site. Traditional structural insulated panels (SIPs) consist of oriented strand boards (OSB) as facesheets and expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam as the core. These panels are highly energy efficient but have issues in terms of poor impact resistance and higher life cycle costs. Proposed panels ...
