|dc.description.abstract||This article presents the design procedures for the use of precast hollowcore slabs in steel-concrete composite construction. The paper also summarises the recent and on-going work on the transfer of this knowledge into the Australian construction industry. Whilst it is common practice to use precast concrete planks in Australian building construction, the benefits of composite behaviour with steel beams have not yet been fully realised with these systems, (National Precast Concrete Association of Australia, 2003). The use of precast hollowcore slabs in steel composite construction has seen rapid growth in popularity since it was first developed in the 1990s. The main advantages of this form of construction are that precast hollowcore slabs can span up to 15 metres without propping. The erection of 1.2 metre wide precast concrete units is simple and quick, shear studs can be pre-welded on beams before delivery to site thereby offering the savings associated with shorter construction times.||en_US|
