 Cross-sections in Class 1 or 2 The methods of calculation for sections in Class 1 or 2 are in principle the same as those for composite slabs, explained in Section 3.3.1, to which reference should be made. The main assumptions are as follows: the tensile strength of concrete is neglected; plane cross-sections of the structural steel and reinforced concrete parts of a

The width of slab considered in calculations, b, is usually taken as one metre, but for clarity only a width of one wavelength is shown in Fig.3.2. The overall thickness hs is required by Eurocode 4 to be not less than 80 mm; and the thickness of concrete above the ‘main flat surface’ of the top of the ribs of the sheeting, to
