This report details the current situation on the design rules for shallow floor beams and deep composite slabs in accordance with ENV 1993 Eurocode 3 and ENV 1994 Eurocode 4. The design of these shallow floor beams at the ultimate and serviceability limit states, the full scale tests that were carried out during the course of this research, and load tests of deep decking and composite slabs are reviewed. Other constructional features are also addressed. Based on this information, design tables are presented for HE and UC steel sections with different span and load configurations. Input and output information is given for a specifically developed computer program that analyses shallow floor beams to Eurocodes 3 and 4 and a fully worked example is given
