Abstract: The Steel Deck Institute (SDI) of the USA has synthesized the composite slab research and testing that has been conducted in the U.S. during the past 25 years and has presented a design rationale based on customary reinforced concrete design methods. Two design procedures are shown; one for use if shear studs are present on steel beams and one for use without shear studs. A partial composite factor is introduced for cases in which the shear studs are applied to the beams in quantities less than required to fully develop the tension yield force of the deck cross section.
