Determination of the bending moment resistance of a composite slab
The bending moment resistance of a composite slab depends on the longitudinal shear resistance of the deck. ComFlor 210 is a steel deck that is not governed by EN1994, because of the large height of this deck. The longitudinal resistance has to be determined by some series of laboratory tests. Two methods are available, namely the American mk method and the European τu.Rd method.
