CVEN 4545 - Steel Design George.Hearn@colorado.edu DESCRIPTION The deck system shown here is a reinforced concrete slab cast onto a deformed steel sheets. The steel sheets, often called deck pans, are selected to support construction loads that include the sheet itself, reinforcing steel, wet concrete and construction workers and minor equipment. The deformations in steel sheets provide flexural strength. Strength available during construction increases with depth of deformation and thickness (gage) of the steel sheets. Once concrete is hardened, the strength depends on overall thickness of concrete and the amount and location of reinforcing steel in concrete. Finished decks may be composite or noncomposite. In a composite deck, steel sheets themselves provide reinforcement for hardened concrete. The sheets must have positive attachment to concrete. In a noncomposite deck, steel sheets do not provide reinforcement for hardened concrete. Manufacturers of steel deck pans publish design aids that list the load capacity of the deck pan
