Abstract: The general advantage of sandwich concept over monolithic concept is to increase the inertia of the member by keeping skin faces apart, resulting into increase in flexural rigidity. In this study, the sandwich panel was designed such that skins are made up of self-flowing-concrete & steel composite and are kept apart through connector provided in the form of web of profile sheet. Since concrete is weak in tension, a non –uniform cross section of profile sheet was used such that tensile flange area was more than compressive flange area. The used concrete along with steel in bottom skin will increase the flexural rigidity and provide cover to steel. Sandwich panel was designed aiming at complete failure should not happen either in compression, tension and core should be strong in shear till strain limit of 3500 micron strain. For the same dimension of sandwich panel (850 x 1800 x 150) mm, monolithic slab was designed and the performance of sandwich panel in terms of strength to cost and strength to weight ratio over monolithic slab have been investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The designed sandwich panel will aim to substitute flexural member slab, considering more strength for less weight and less cost.
