What has to cure when installing hollowcore? Is there grout or sealant between the slabs? Is the hollowcore glued or mechanically fastened to the steel structure?

The ends and sides of the hollow core planks are grouted and tied to each other with rebar and to anchors on top of the steel beams.

Until that is done, the floor diaphragm has no real strength. Sort of like if put plywood on top of floor joists, but didn't screw it down.
