Abstract

Composite slab design relies upon adequate shear bond resistance between the steel and concrete. This is achieved by friction between the materials and the mechanical interlock of embossments pressed in the steel. The behaviour of this shear bond resistance is complex and is obtainable only from model tests. This paper explores the potential for numerical modelling to provide the required design information.

Towards a Numerical Procedure for Composite Slab Assessment

Composite slab design relies upon adequate shear bond resistance between the steel and concrete. This is achieved by friction between the materials and the mechanical interlock of embossments pressed in the steel. The behaviour of this shear bond resistance is complex and is obtainable only from model tests. This paper explores the potential for numerical modelling to provide the required design information.
