CONCRETE SLABS WITH PARTIALLY EMBEDDED STEEL-BEAM SUPPORTS

AN INVESTIGATION INTO A SYSTEM OF CONSTRUCTION WHICH PREVIOUSLY COULD NOT BE USED BY THE STRUCTURAL DESIGNER BECAUSE OF LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF ITS BEHAVIOR IS DESCRIBED. TESTS WERE MADE WHICH SIMULATED REINFORCED CONCRETE SLABS SUPPORTED ON UNENCASED STEEL BEAMS AT VARIOUS LEVELS OF EMBEDMENT FROM 0 TO 80% OF THE EFFECTIVE SLAB DEPTH. THE RESULTS ARE PRESENTED IN THE FORM OF SIMPLE EQUATIONS AND CAN BE APPLIED WITH CONFIDENCE TO SLABS NOT EXCEEDING 150 MM DEPTH AND 3 M SPAN. /RRL(A)/
