Abstract

الملخص

The Open Web Joist (OWJ) system supports floor and roof in simple span conditions

The concrete slab designed to be reinforced in one way slab method work independently from the supports.

A composite floor joist system (HAMBRO) system consists of hybrid concrete/steel T-beams running in one direction, the top cord is embedded in the concrete and functions as a continuous shear connector.

The above systems are widespread in North America, mostly in the United States and Canada, for roof constructions of commercial and industrial buildings
