'Slimflor' and 'Slimdek' Construction: European Development

Slim-floor construction provides a steel-concrete floor construction of approximately 300mm depth. ‘Slimflor ’ and ‘Slimdek’ construction are trademarks of specific systems of slim-floor construction. This paper reviews the design principles of this form of construction in accordance with Eurocodes 3 and 4, and presents the results of structural and fire tests which have provided data for use in the design process. A key feature is the use of deep decking which spans directly between the beams as a composite slab. R.M. Lawson, H. Bode, J.W.P.M. Brekelmans, P.J. Wright and D.L. Mullett
