The research work is to study the behavior of the composite concrete slabs with CRIL DECKSPAN type profiled steel decking by experimental and simulation study. The slab is created by composite interaction between concrete and steel deck with rolled embossments to improve their shear-bond characteristics. However, it fails under longitudinal shear-bond due to the complex phenomenon of shear behavior. Therefore, an experimental full-size tests has been carried out to investigate the shear-bond strength under flexural test in accordance with Eurocode 4: Part 1.1. Eighteen specimens are split into six sets of three specimens each in which all sets are tested for different shear span lengths under static and cyclic loading on simply supported slabs. The full-size finite element (FE) modeling and analysis of the composite slabs is presented, in which the shear-bond interaction between the concreteand steel deck is simulated by the use of interface contact elements. The FE analysis is verified and validated by comparing the experimental results. Comparisons of the experimental and simulation results indicate that the FE analysis agrees well with the test results, and is capable of predicting the behavior and the load carrying capacity of composite slabs.
