Kiwi Rail Locomotive 5D Wash Slab & Foundations

Dramix 5D structural steel fibre Foundations & Combi Slab

The new Kiwi Rail Locomotive wash slab in Christchurch was designed to be watertight without any joints. Dramix 5D structural steel fibre was used to provide additional capacity in the foundations and was also used in the slab to design for a nominal crack width of 0.2mm.

Technical solution:

  • Dramix 5D 65/60BG
  • Reduced reinfocement requirement
  • Dramix concrete pumped
