RSD decking can be used as permanent shuttering to an insitu concrete topping, or as both shuttering and tensile reinforcement to form what is referred to as a composite floor slab.
Composite floor slabs form the most frequent application, and these are designed to the currently applicable design code BS5950: Part 4.
When the deck is used for permanent shuttering the slab should be designed independently, and the deck performance is only considered in construction stage only. We have software that can calculate the exact design parameters which will give you a full report on behavior of the deck and concrete.
RSD design will provide all design input for composite and sacrificial formwork applications with steel frame integration design reports for extra reassurance.
