This paper deals with a new type of semiprefabricated slab. The slab is made of precast thin slab stiffened by a set of folded wire fabric including cast in-situ topping concrete. This study covers both the salient features of design and construction of this flooring system and experimental work carried out to study the flexural behavior of the slabs cast using the system. The results of the experiment showed that composite precast slab consisting of the precast thin slab and in-situ topping concrete can be designed as a monolithic component.
