Abstract

This paper presents highlights of the newly approved and printed ASCE Standard on the design and construction of composite floor deck slabs utilizing cold-formed steel. In 1992 four documents are being published including the following: • "Standard for the Structural Design of Composite Slabs"--ASCE3-92, • "Standard Practice for Construction and Inspection of Composite Slabs"-ASCE9-92, and • A separate commentary on each of the two above Standards. These above four documents stem from a previously published ASCE Standard entitled "Specifications for the Design and Construction of Composite Slabs" and the associated commentary thereon. The Steel Deck with Concrete Committee of the ASCE Standards Division Program has been the committee responsible for the development of these standards. The committee is continuing to work on a third standard on the diaphragm design of floor slabs utilizing cold-formed steel decking with concrete. The paper presents the results and highlights of the accepted two standards and will discuss the status and potential items for inclusion in the proposed new diaphragm standard. Also, the presentation will give summary highlights of the ASCE standards progress in the future development of the. standards program.
