Composite Slabs with Profiled Sheeting

Elastic Design of Composite Slabs

Upper-Bound Estimate of the Reliability of Plastic Slabs
This paper gives a brief presentation of some recent results on probabilistic analysis of plastic slabs, especially reinforced concrete slabs. The estimate of the reliability of such slabs...

Effects of Random Material Properties and Loads
The variability of slab deflections is estimated from analytical expressions accounting for random variations of spatially distributed loads and material properties (stiffness parameters)....

Actual Versus Assumed Behaviour of Girder Bridges
It is generally believed that the discrepancies between calculated and actual responses of bridges can diminish, to the point of being nonexistent, with refinement in the method of analysis....

Behavior of Australian Composite Slabs

Steel Plate and Concrete Composite Slab

Methods for Predicting Strength in Composite Slabs

Analysis of R/C Slab Under Turbine Missile Impact
Turbine missile impact on reinforced concrete barrier in nuclear reactor power plants is simulated using the finite element method. One of four full scale turbine missile impact tests...

Slab Participation in Frames under Lateral Loads
A unique opportunity to study slab participation was afforded by the U. S. -Japan Cooperative project on large scale testing. The data obtained from the full-scale 7-story building tested...

Strength of Composite Beams under Seismic Loading
Effective width of a concrete slab of a composite beam is specified in various specifications, but their theoretical backgrounds are obscure. Originally, they must have been specified...

Load-Bearing Capacity of Masonry Walls in a Critical Buckling Condition Taking Into Account the Restraining Effect of Floor Slabs
This paper studies the buckling effect of masonry walls and concrete floor slabs as a frame system. The frame is calculated according to the theory of II. order. The buckling length, the...

Wall/Floor-Slab Interaction in Brickwork Structures
The paper summarises the results of three series of tests on sections of brickwork structure carried out with a view to determining the characteristics of wall/floor slab joints in terms...

Specifications for the Design and Construction of Composite Slabs and Commentary on Specifications for the Design and Construction of Composite Slabs
Composite slab construction is defined as a system comprising normal weight or lightweight structural concrete placed permanently over cold-formed steel decking in which the steel deck...

Alto Anchicaya Dam—Ten Years Performance
The general aspects of design and construction of the Alto Anchicaya Dam duilt during 1970 - 1974 in Colombia, South America are described. The paper refers to the performance of the structure...

Golillas Dam—Design, Construction and Performance
Golillas Dam is a concrete face, gravel fill dam, 125 m (410 ft) high built seven years ago that has had some difficulties during its initial operating years; due to the shape of the canyon,...

The R. D. Bailey Dam, a Concrete-Faced, Earth-Rockfill
A case history for the R. D. Bailey Dam, describing its comparatively unique design and construction considerations, and its operational performance since initial reservoir filling in...

Fortuna Concrete Face Rockfill Dam
The Fortuna Dam is a 60 m high concrete face rockfill dam located in Panama, designed to be built in two stages. This paper describes the construction of the first stage dam, 60 m high,...

Design Features of Salvajina Dam
Salvajina dam is the second highest concrete face rockfill dam currently in service in the world. The characteristics of the foundation of the toe slab vary from fresh, sound and little...

Boondooma Dam
Concrete faced rockfill construction was adopted for the 210 ft (64 m) high Boondooma Dam in Southern Queensland, Australia, after detailed comparison between concrete faced and earth...
