Modelling The Fire Performance of Structural Timber-Concrete .

Show all authors. Abstract: This paper describes numerical modelling to predict the fire resistance of engineered timber-concrete composite floor systems. The paper describes 3D numerical modelling of the floor systems using finite element software, carried out as a sequential thermo-mechanical analysis. Experimental..

Behavior of Composite TimberConcrete Floors | Journal of .

Nov 1, 1993 . Timberconcrete floors are widely used in the Persian Gulf region because of their resistance to the hot and aggressive environment of the area. Because no shear connector is provided, the timber joists and concrete slab work independently. In this study, it is suggested that relatively inexpensive..
