Testing composite wood and lightweight concrete girders

Vlatka Rajčić

Abstract

Results obtained by testing bearing capacity and usability of composite girders made of wood and light-weight concrete, are presented. A new and original method for obtaining composite action is presented and its advantages in ensuring composite action of lightweight concrete and wood, as related to discrete means for providing composite action, are determined. As no country has specified in appropriate regu-lations a mandatory calculation method, the author presents a simplified calculation method as a pro-posal within the framework of the STEP/EUROFORTECH initiative of the EU Comett Program.

Keywords
ratio of composite action, connection sheets, calculation model, composite wood and lightweight concrete structure, discontinuous and conti-nuous composite action
