Reports on tests on six model composite floors of a wide range of transverse stiffness. Test results regarding second moments of area, composite action in longitudinal and transverse directions, and ultimate strengths were studied with reference to the 1960 tentative recommendations of ACI-ASCE Committee 333 and to British Code CP 117: 1965.
