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 publication presents construction details and methods of design for slim floor construction comprising Slimflor fabricated beams, and in situ concrete acting compositely with the steel deep decking. (Published 1999)
Resistance of members at elevated temperature (in fire conditions) is a key component of structural design. The Eurocodes describe how resistances may be calculated, including simple methods which are readily applied to common structural forms.
SCI has published new design guidance in P403 covering the resistance of beams and columns in Fire. This publication presents two numerical worked examples demonstrating the calculation of the critical temperature and resistance at elevated temperature. The examples cover both unprotected and protected solutions, using the simple calculation methods given in the Eurocodes.
