ABNT NBR 8800 (2008) prescribes two longitudinal shear design criteria for composite slabs with ribbed decking: m-k method and partial interaction method. The m-k method is considered the worldwide standard method. In this method, the longitudinal resistant shear strength is obtained from linear regression of test results. The partial composite method is an alternative to the m-k method and shall be used only for composite slabs with a ductile behavior. In this scenario, the objective of this paper is to compare these two methods with respect to test results of full size composite slabs employing steel-deck MF 50 manufactured by METFORM. The analysis of the comparative study shows good correlation between the two methods with respect to the prediction of the ultimate strength of the tested composite slabs.

Keywords: composite slabs, ribbed decking, longitudinal shear.
