Abstract: The structural performance of concrete sandwich wall panels after having exposed to various environmental conditions was investigated in this study. Reinforced concrete expanded polystyrene core panels were subjected to exposures simulating corrosion, alternate wetting and drying and dry heat conditions. Post exposure, the panels were tested for their in plane shear and out of plane bending strengths. The degree of composite action for panels tested in flexure was calculated in terms of initial stiffness. No reduction in the composite action was noted after exposure to different chosen exposure conditions.
