HAMBRO D500 Composite Floor System

Hambro D500

Combining Hambro steel joists with poured concrete, the system consists of hybrid concrete/steel T-beams running in one direction and an integrated continuous slab in the other (see drawing below).

The bottom chord (fy 50,000 psi min.) acts as a tension member in the concreting stage and during the service life of the floor. The web system tying top and bottom chords together consist of bent rods (fy 44,000 psi min.) and resists vertical shear in a conventional truss manner. The patented 13 gauge top chord (fy 50,000 psi min.) acts as a compression member during the non-composite stage. In the composite stage, the top chord is embedded in the concrete and functions as a continuous shear connector. The concrete slab is reinforced with welded wire mesh.

The top chord functions as a high chair, developing negative moment capacity in the concrete slab which behaves as a continuous one-way reinforced slab.
