Abstract
This paper contains results of experimental research executed on composite timber-concrete floor. Original two-storey family house that is about 80 years old is in reconstruction by September 2014. Composite floor was built on the original brick walls of the first storey after removal of the original roof structure. New floor consists of timber beams with dimensions 100/220 mm, with regular spacing 740 mm and span about 5.3 m. On these beams 18 mm thick cement bonded particleboards (CETRIS) were put and fixed with nails. These sheets created the decking for the 70 mm thick concrete deck. Measurement of deformations and stresses was performed immediately after removing the temporary supports. Obtained experimental results were compared to the theoretical calculation models.
