Design of composite beams using precast concrete slabs in accordance with Eurocode 4 (P401)

This new publication takes the previously published SCI guidance provided in Design of Composite Beams using Precast Concrete Slabs (P287) 2003 based on BS 5950-3:1990 and presents updated guidance in accordance with the principles of Eurocode 4, supplemented by non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI).

This new publication takes the previously published SCI guidance provided in Design of Composite Beams using Precast Concrete Slabs (P287) 2003 based on BS 5950-3:1990 and presents updated guidance in accordance with the principles of Eurocode 4, supplemented by non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI).

The guidance discusses the particular issues affecting the use of precast concrete concerning the requirements of effective shear connection and transverse reinforcement. Reference is made to small scale push out tests, and earlier composite beam tests, that have established reduction factors for the design resistance of welded shear connectors as a function of the gap between the ends of the precast concrete units, and the amount of transverse reinforcement provided. The publication includes guidance on design of the steel beams during construction, in accordance with Eurocode 4.
