Building Structural Design - Composite Beam Section Properties
Chapter 2: Structural Steel Beams, Part 1
This application calculates the horizontal shear and section properties for composite steel beam and concrete slab sections with solid slabs, composite steel decks, or haunches. Computations are made for beams and slabs over a complete usable range of composite action from 25% to 100%. The user must identify the steel section that is used. The user must also enter the dimensions and section properties of the steel section, the dimensions of the slab section and "haunch", the compressive strength of the concrete, the unit weight of concrete and the yield strength of the steel section.
