To support the ambitious Timber Concrete Composite (TCC) “slab band” design proposed by Fast + Epp for Limberlost Place (formerly called The Arbour), a robust testing program was completed to determine the out of plane shear capacity of TCC panels, the capacity of three types of shear flow connectors, the ultimate flexural resistance of the panels, torsional behavior of the panels, and the vibration performance of such a system.
