RE: Composite OWSJ's

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have seen the old catalog as well. I believe the savings is in depth
of the truss (if memory serves) ... because of the use of the slab in
the effective moment of inertia. I don't have any references to site
however. You could design a traditional truss this way using the AISC
with the composite top chord done in the usual fashion. Design the truss
non-compositely for construction loads and seismic/wind collector
forces. Perhaps Steel joist institute can help.

Has anyone used composite OWSJ's before? I remember having seen a
catalog
that Vulcraft put out for this. But I wonder if there is any real
savings to
be had?
