This is not necessarily a shear flow question. If there were two beams side by side made of the same material of equal cross section which were uniformly and equally loaded, there wouldn't be any shear between them and they would deflect the same amount. Keep in mind though that the analysis for reinforcing an existing member that is in service is very different than one for reinforcing a member before it is put into service. If a simple span GLB is a part of an existing structure and new channels are bolted to the GLB at the neutral axis, it seems to me that the only force transferred through the bolts into the channels is that which is caused by live loading when the composite section is loaded and deflects. The amount of live load to each member can be proportioned according to the percentages of the composite moment of inertia. A transformed section should be used when calculating the moment of inertia of the GLB. The GLB will take all of the dead load + ((Transformed I / Composite I)* Live Load). The channels will take a percentage of the live load dependant on their moment of inertia's divided by the composite moment of inertia. The end reactions of the new channels will have to be accounted for. The analysis is similar if it is new construction except that the force transferred through the bolts is from dead + live loads.

I am trying to find the shear flow at the channel to wd beam contact area so that I may figure our how many bolts I need to faster the composite beam together. I am using the formula f = QV/I, where V is the maximum shear load on the beam, I is the moment of inertia for the composite section, and Q the first moment of inertia of the glulam beam that is in contact with the channel = yA where, y is the distance from the centroid of the block of wd in contact with the channels to the neutral axis and A is the area of the same block of wd. If I am using a channel that is a C12X20.7 and a 6.75X31.5 glulam, Q = ((12/2)-dist to neutral axis of entire section)*6.75*12=248in3. I = 17964.83 in4 and V = 48kips. f = 8kip/ft which seems very high. The shear flow that I get seems very high. Do I have to use the transformed section in order to get the shear flow? (i.e. transform the wd beam into an equivalent steel member in order to get the correct shear flow). Or, is using I of the composite section based on the geometry of the cross section ok? Gina T.
