STUDY OF ARNODIN STEEL METAL FLOOR SLABS

ETUDE DES PLATELAGES METALLIQUES DE TYPE ARNODIN

The author studies arnodin floor slabs consisting of parallel groups of standard folded plate caissons of small thickness (4mm) placed side by side on bridge elements, parallel to the axis of the pavement. He studies the general behaviour and local behaviour, and eventually defines the limits of use of this type of floor slab. He proposes a general calculation method, the method of cuts, for the determination of displacement and stress in structures composed of slabs and side to side beams, placed side by side on free supports and stiffened by transverse webs or diaphragms. The theoretical study is completed by a model study. After comparing theoretical and experimental results, using a model of sections reinforced by rods and unreinforced, the author seeks to define, by a multistage theoretical study, an optimum stiffening system for this section. /TRRL/
