5 Claims. (Cl. 52-334) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A panel adapted for use in a composite concrete-metal panel structure wherein the panel comprises a plurality of trough-shaped portions having projections extending from the walls in oblique directions with the projections having a total cross-sectional area such that the panel is capable, when employed with concrete, to form a composite unit of supporting a horizontal tensile load free of separate discrete reinforcing bars.

This invention relates to a metal form into which concrete or the like is adapted to be poured in order to cast a roof or oor structure. It more particularly relates to a permanent metal form for providing a base for rein- Iforced concrete oors, roof slabs, and the like.

To facilitate the erection of building structures, forms are needed as a base for concrete floors and roof slabs which span the joist and beam components of the framework. A variety of form systems are available including formed metal sheets over which reinforced concrete slabs are laid. In one system for the metal form centering of concrete roofs and oors a shaped metal form having sloped side walls is used. After the forms have been positioned on the supporting joists or beams and the reinforcing rods or mesh located, the concrete is poured over the form. When the concrete hardens, the concrete and the form becomes an integral structure. The for-m has the dual function of aiding in the casting operation and of reinforcing the concrete at its lower surface where it is the weakest. It is desirable, however, to improve the bonding between the form surface and the concrete.

Accordingly, thi-s invention provides a permanent metal form havin-g projections disposed on the side wall elements of the form for keying the concrete to the form. The holding force therebetween consists not only of the bonding force of the concrete, but in addition and quite importantly, of the keying force of the projections. These projections are preferably formed in a blank sheet by means of embossing rollers or other conventional roll-forming or sheet metal Ifabricating techniques during the shaping of the sheet into a final form. The projections thus formed, though simple and easy to make, provide an inexpensive way of keying the concrete to the form. Additionally this invention obviates the need for reinforcing means while at the same time allowing for increased design strength for the integral concrete-panel form. The advantages of this invention are particularly apparent in considering the time, labor and material saved due to the deletion of conventional reinforcing bars in the erection of large multi-story buildings.

Thus, this invention provides for bonding of a metal deck with concrete or the like in a manner that reliably provides for shear transfer permitting a designer to use the metal deck for reinforcing the steel structurally.

Prior -metal deck constructions have been used for a form during erection and dead load support whereas the metal form of this invention permits the same steel to participate as an integral system for live load support wherein conventional reinforcing bars are eliminated.

The form used in carrying out this invention has a generally corrugated shape, employing adjacent troughshaped portions which are connected to one another by top walls. Each of the trough-shaped portions has a bottom wall which connects spaced side walls angularly disposed to the connecting top and bottom walls. rIlhe side walls which can depend perpendicularly or obliquely from the top walls are provided with projections which aid in keying the concrete to the form.

Other advantages will be seen when reference is made to the remainder of the specification and the drawings.

In the drawing there is shown a specific illustrative embodiment of this invention which comprises a form 10 having a general outline which is known in the art. Concrete 11 or the like is cast into form 10, which, upon hardening, results in an integral structure. Viewing FIG- URE 2, the form has smooth, uninterrupted spaced top walls 12 which lie in a plane. Parallel to and spaced between the top walls 12 lie similar smooth, uninterrupted spaced bottom walls 13. The walls 12 and 13 are preferably left smooth and void of embossments because the beam strength of these walls is reduced if there are projections or weakened places along their length. Welding the `forms to other structural members or to each other as shown for example in FIGURE 7 would be rendered difcult if walls 12 and 13 were not smooth, and the laying of electrical conduits and the like upon the smooth walls is facilitated. Spaced side Walls 14 are connected to a bottom wall 13 to form a trough shaped portion. The trough shaped portions 9 are connected together by top walls 12 to form the corrugated panel. The side walls can be perpendicular to the walls 12 and 13; however, they are generally sloped preferably outwardly from the bottom walls but they can be sloped inwardly if desired.

Either one or both of the opposite side Walls 14 in a trough shaped portion are provided with projections 1'5 along the entire length of the side wall. Projections 15 in each Wall 14 can be made either convex as shown in FIGURES 2, 3 and 4 or concave as shown in FIGURE 6. It is also contemplated that alternate projections can be made concave and convex in a repeating sequence as shown in FIGURE 5. The projections 15 can take various embodiments or patterns as shown in FIGURES 8 through 11.

The pattern of oblique projections of FIGURE 3 is the preferred embodiment. When this embodiment is employed, it is desirable to have the oblique projections in one wall 14 of a trough-shaped portion extend in a different direction from the oblique projections in the opposite spaced side wall. In fact, the projections in one Wall 14 are disposed at 45 degrees with respect to the lon-gitudinal axis of the Wall and extend in one direction, while the projections in the opposite spaced side wall 14 are disposed at 45 degrees with respect to the longitudinal axis of the Wall and extend in the other direction. In other Words, the projections in the opposite side Walls of a trough-shaped portion are perpendicular to each other. These projections simultaneously prevent the vertical and horizontal displacement of concrete when the composite hydrated concrete-steel for-m beam is loaded in any manner, thereby reducing concrete slippage, while at the same time and increasing the load capacity for any given combination of projections. Projections placed only in the vertical side walls facilitate shipment as there is no interference in stacking. All load bearing horizontal walls are free of projections which, were they present in the horizontal top and bottom Walls, would cause damage to the protective coating on the metal forms during shipment.

The embodiment or pattern shown in FIGURE 8 comprises a repeating ordered sequence of elongated spaced perpendicular projections in wall 14.

The embodiment or pattern shown in FIGURE 9 cornprises a random arrangement of projections in side wall 14.

The embodiment or pattern shown in FIGURE l2 comprises a plurality of elongated projections in side wall 14 extending parallel to the longitudinal directions of top wall 12 and bottom Wall 13.

The embodiment or pattern shown in FIGURE comprises a plurality of diamond-shaped projections in side wall 14.

While the projections have been described as preferably created in the blank sheet by means of embossing rollers and are in fact embossments, it is to be understood that the projections might be formed by Welding metal strips or pieces 15a to the sheet, or to the side Walls as shown in FIGURE l1.

FIGURE 7 shows an application of the invention to a structural cellular panel system. In FIGURE 7 is shown a panel unit in which there are closely spaced ducts. Form 16 is composed of form 10 and similar form 17 attached t-o each other, for example by welding, in back-to-back relation. The structure of the composite form 16 possesses great structural stability. Moreover, the elongated duct 18 formed by the respective Walls of the back-to-back panels provides a convenient means for carrying electrical conduits and the like.

The hat-shaped section of FIGURE 4 illustrates another type of a conventional form to which the invention can be applied. It is therefore apparent `that the inventive concept herein disclosed is not limited to the general type of form shown in FIGURES 1 and 7 but is useful in connection with other types of forms having wall members.

Each form 10 is provided with means for attaching it to other similar forms so as to provide an entire floor or roof. In the embodiment illustrated in FIGURE 1 a tongue 19 and a groove 20 are employed to accomplish this purpose.

To demonstrate the advantages of this invention, tests were conducted to ascertain the load carrying capacity of a composite construction employing the novel panel Test specimen: Description A yPanel having projections on side walls as shown and disclosed herein plus concrete.

B Panel having no projections on any walls thereof plus concrete.

C Panel having no projections on any Walls thereof plus reinforcing bars and concrete.

D Panel having no projections on any walls thereof plus reinforcing bars and concrete (panel used only as concrete form, the panel being removed before loading).

E Concrete plus reinforcing bars (concrete was solid slab).

The roll formed panels utilized in the tests, with and without projections were all .030 (22 gauge) in thickness. The maximum depth of the individual projections extending outwardly from the face of the side walls of the panel designated specimen A is about 0.075 inch.

In all tests, a load P was applied in equal increments up to apparent yield at which time deflection dials were removed and loading was then continued to ultimate failure. The load P was :applied to the top of a slab through I beam sections to simulate a knife-edge loading. The loading arrangement for these tests is illustrated in FIGURE 14. Loading was accomplished by means of a hydraulic ram.

For purpose of analysis:

IT=Total moment of inertia for test specimen. P=load.

E=Modulus of elasticity of steel-2.95 106 p.s.i. L=Length of test specimen-60" (72"). A=Deliection at centerline of specimen.

The results of the load-deliection tests on the various test specimens designated A-E yabove are shown in Table I:

TABLE I Percent Chango Test Specimen P, Lbs. A, In IT, In.4 Comparison To Test A As evidenced by the above table, comparison test results reveal the load carrying capacity of a metal form having projections on the side walls plus concrete, is increased by 11.5% minimum (Test A compared 'to Test C) and by 62.5% maximum (Test A compared to Test E) Thus, not only are lsavings effected with the present invention due to obviating the need for the time, labor and material presently utilized in installing reinforcing bars, but additionally,

the load carrying capacity of this new and novel panel is increased more than 11%.

An illustrative embodiment of this invention employs a galvanized 16 gauge steel sheet panel. The illustrative panel has a distance between rib centers, that is the distance between the center of one bottom wall to the center of the next adjacent bottom wall is 6 inches, the depth of the trough-shaped portions in the panel being 11/2 inches. The panel is 24 inches wide and 28 feet 6 inches long. The projections which function as the keying elements are formed in the side walls of the panel and consist of embossments which are convex with respect to the surface of the panel which is in contact with the concrete. The projections extend at 45 degrees in the longitudinal direction on one side wall and at 45 degrees in the longitudinal direction on the opposite sidewall. The embossments are approximately 1% inch wide and extend outwardly from the face of the side wall about 3/16 of an inch. In general, the projections will extend over a major proportion of the width of the side wall upon which they are formed with the overall projection length being sucient to provide a composite concrete-metal panel structure under loading conditions. This condition can be effected using projection lengths (vertically projected and cumulative) of 1/z-% of the width of the side wall. The projections are positioned, in the illustrative embodiment, along the length of the side wall. This is desirable from a manufacturing standpoint; however, for certain installations where shearing stresses do not occur along the length of the composite structure it is only necessary to employ projections in the areas of the side wall which are subjected to shearing stresses when the composite structure is acting under load conditions.

Although the subject invention has been described with reference to a number of specific embodiments, it is evident that one skilled in the art can make various modifications without departing from the scope of the invention. For a variety of illustrative embodiments, reference is made to a brochure entitled Inland Floor Systems, Catalog No. 270, published by Inland Steel Products Company, Milwaukee, Wis. Conventional materials of construction are used in forming sheet metal panels Which embody metal panels which embody the instant invention. Although galvanized sheet steel or uncoated sheet steel are preferred, other structural materials, such as aluminum, copper and its alloys, etc., can be employed. In order to afford sufcient structural lrigidity, the section properties of the formed panel are selected to provide a panel which can function as a safe working platform for a workman as soon as it is positioned on the structural framework of the building and serve as a concrete form and reinforcement without the need for expensive `shoring to hold the form while the wet concrete is being poured. For the illustrative forms shown in FIGURE 13, panel types A to F, 16 to 26 gauge sheet metal suices to provide these properties. In Table II is tabularly summarized the section properties for a variety of profiles and gauges of commercially available panels.

The length of the panels provrded will depend upon the joist or beam spacings. Generally the panels are con- Ventionally provided in lengths up to about 30 feet for ease in handling. However, the length of the Sheet is not important. Spans are selected which will permit a maximum loading with minimum deflection of the reinforced concrete oor or roof system. Although a variety of projection designs can be employed, it is preferable not to employ projections which are deeper than 1A inch when using galvanized sheet metal having a gauge between about 16 to 20. It is to be understood that the invention is not limited to particular dimensions or ratios or combinations thereof but are illustrative only.
