Abstract:
Comoosite beams and slabs of timber and concrete offer a’ useful form of construction for heavy floors of highway bridges, piers and similar structures. The essential feature of such floors is a shear connection between the timber and concrete elements. Tests on a number of types of shear units are described in this and their relative effectiveness is discussed. !‘?oqekr;\g stresses are proposed and methods of apply- ing composite construction to continuous structures are briefly outlined.
