RE: Composite Girders

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I usually calculate it based upon the panel being rectangular 2 to 1 or greater. >From ACI 318-63, Method 2, Design of Two Way Slabs, M = C w S^2, where C = .033, w = the uniform load and S = span. If you are using metal deck, don't forget that the bending depth of the slab perpendicular to the girder is the total slab thickness minus the deck height.
Good Luck!

Does anyone have a reference for how much reinforcing (and what length) to put over interior composite steel girders supporting composite steel beams? I was thinking ASCE 3 had something but I can’t find it.
