Analysis and testing of composite wood-concrete floor/deck systems

Author(s): R. Gutkowski, J. Balogh, M. Wieligmann, C. Rogers & P. Haller

Abstract:
Experimental and analykal studies of composite wood-concrete floorldeck systems have been ongoing at Colorado State University.

A novel shear keylanchor detail of overlaying solid wood floors in office buildings with a concrete layer, thus creating a composite floor, was adapted for this study.

The detail utilizes a notch to transfer bearing stress and shear stress in the joined materials for interlayer force transfer, rather than connector shear.

Compared to ordinary mechanical connectors, the connection detail develops a substantially higher degree of composite action. Systems are being studied for residences, offices etc.

and short span bridges. Laboratory testing included pull-out tests on th...
