%X Composite steel-concrete slabs using thin-walled
corrugated steel sheets with embossments represent a modern and
effective combination of steel and concrete. However, the design
of new types of sheeting is conditional on the execution of expensive
and time-consuming laboratory testing. The effort to develop
a cheaper and faster method has lead to many investigations all over
the world. In our paper we compare the results from our experiments
involving vacuum loading, four-point bending and small-scale shear
tests.
