Hambro MD2000 - Concrete Floor Systems
your application calls for a steel deck, turn to Hambro’s
Projects with elevated floor challenges in an environment
where steel is the framing solution use Hambro as their edge
for a composite joist that provides shallow depth and more
head room and good fire ratings.
Concrete/steel T-beams run in one direction, and an integrated
continuous slab in the other. During the concrete pour and
cure, the bottom chord (Fy 50,000 psi min.or Fy 350 Mpa min.)
act as a tension member and continues to serve as this member
during the service life of the floor.
The web system tying top and bottom chords together consists
of bent rods (Fy 44,000 psi min. or 300 Mpa min.) and resists
vertical shear in a conventional truss manner. The patented
13-gauge top chord (Fy 50,000 psi min. or 350 Mpa min.) acts
as a compression member during the non-composite stage.
When the composite is being formed, 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 develops negative moment capacity in the concrete
slab, which performs as a continuous one-way reinforced slab.
At the same time, it serves as a high chair.
