AD 367: Construction loading for composite slabs – update to P364
This Advisory Desk Note provides clarification about the different design approaches adopted in worked examples in SCI publications P359 and P364. Although the numbering sequence of these two publications would suggest otherwise, P359 was published after P364 and, in relation to construction loading, incorporates a later interpretation of the design loading according to the Eurocodes. Therefore, the advice on construction loading in P359 (which incorporates advice given in AD346) supersedes that in P364. This Note highlights the differences between the two publications and advises where P364 should be updated.
