Abstract:
A successful building component will form an integral part of a building system, serving its main functions without detracting from the efficiency of the other components or the final assemblage. With this objective in mind, a review is made of structural decking and its use as an integral component in composite floors in concrete frame building construction. A number of systemic improvements are described. These include: ultra-long-spanning formwork that may not affect the overall depth of the slab; multi-panel modularisation for rapid erection; passage of reinforcement in multiple layers and directions in two-way slabs; voiding of the concrete for weight and steel reduction as well as provision for building services; multi-directional jointing of decking panels; and rapid reinforcement placement techniques.
