The shallowness of the floors is achieved by placing the slabs and beams within the same zone. This is achieved by using asymmetric steel beams with a wider bottom than top flange, which enables the slab to sit on the upper surface of the bottom flange with adequate bearing, rather than the upper surface of the top flange as found with downstand beams. The floor slab may be in the form of a precast concrete slab or a composite slab with metal
composite slabs and beams are commonly used (with steel columns) in the commercial, industrial, leisure, health and residential building sectors due to the speed of construction and general structural economy that can be achieved. Although most commonly used on steel framed buildings, composite slabs may also be supported off masonry or concrete components. A typical example of the decking layout for a composite floor is shown in. Figure 1.1. The lines of shear connectors

composite slabs, comprising lightly reinforced concrete cast on profiled steel decking, are an option whether the beams are downstand or integrated within the slab depth for a shallow floor form of construction. The slabs are normally reinforced using an upper layer of mesh and, occasionally, additional bars in the troughs (usually for longer periods of fire resistance and heavy loads). Fibre reinforcement may also be used. Spans of up to 4.5 m can be
Traditional steel - concrete composite floors consist of rolled or built-up structural steel beams and cast in-situ concrete floors connected together using shear connectors in such a manner that they would act monolithically (Fig.1). The principal merit of steel-concrete composite construction lies in the utilisation of the compressive strength of concrete slabs in conjunction with steel beams, in order to enhance the strength and stiffness of the steel girder. More recently, composite floors
Advantages. Advantages of composite slabs. The main benefits of composite slabs are as follows: Versatility; they can be adapted to many practical cases and a multitude of solutions. Resistance/Weight ratio; greater resistance with lese weight, thus enabling a global reduction of the structure's weight. The minimum slab edge measures a mere 12 cm. Quick installation; the absence of props means that more than one floor can be concreted at the same time, thus reducing construction
reinforcement for the bottom fibers of the composite slab. The term. "composite steel deck floor slab" is applied to systems in which the steel deck has some mechanical means of providing positive interlocking between the deck and the concrete. An example is shown in Fig. 1. *. BEAMS. SHEAR CONNECTORS. (IF PRESENT). UTILITY OUTLETS. Fig. 1.

INTRODUCTION ? The composite slabs have now become a common form of construction of floor decks in major buildings. ? In composite slabs, the profile sheet is used as permanent formwork and as tensile reinforcement. ? In this composite slab,

The test facility described in this paper was designed and censtructed for testing composite steel deck diaphragms. All slabs were constructed using corrugated, cold—formed steel decking as composite reinforcement for the con- crete slabs . The results of the tests will eventually be used to formulate design recommendations for in~plane shear

composite floor and decking comes in a variety of guises and is used to produce a range of structurally and resource efficient flooring systems for an array of applications. It is constructed of slabs and beams acting compositely together. composite floor consists of a concrete topping cast onto metal decking. composite floor slabs use metal decking then concrete, either lightweight or normal weight, is pumped onto the decking to make up the composite system. The metal decking acts
concrete prior to pumping, there is no need for pre-fixing or cranes to lift it into place. Rapid Build and Cost Benefit. The use of Dramix fibres considerably speeds up construction by reducing the number of deliveries, on-site manpower and the need for heavy lifting equipment. Safer Construction. On-site health and safety is considerably improved through minimised site handling and crane lifts, reduced trip hazards and reducing site congestion. Kingspan and Bekaert. composite slab.
