RE: modeling composite beams in SAP2000

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think you have to come up with composite properties manually and enter
them as a "General" frame section. I don't believe SAP will calculate
composite properties for you. You could try to construct frame members as a
series of smaller, connected plate elements, but it's an ugly process and I
wouldn't recommend it.

Subject: modeling composite beams in SAP2000

Dear friends:
Is it possible to model composite beams in SAP2000 without doing hand 
calculations? May I simply specify effective width, slab concrete f'c, E, 
etc.? Where?
Thank you very much
