Wood-Concrete-Composite Slab

A wood-concrete-composite is a connection between supporting timber beams and a concrete slab mounted on them. A rigid connection is achieved with shear connectors or screws which transfer shear forces between beams and slab. Wood-concrete-composite floors are utilized when large beam spacing’s or spans must be bridged and high pay loads must be carried after retrofitting the ceiling. This bonding is deemed to be the ideal solution for increasing the load-carrying capacity and stiffness of ceiling systems.
