Composite Beam Design General Principles


From modeling to design, ProtaStructure Suite provides a number of cutting-edge features that will accelerate the design process of composite slabs and beams! You can easily model primary and secondary composite beams and take advantage of the “Metal Deck Library” for sheeting. Additionally, for the shear studs, you can utilize the “Shear Stud Library” of the all-in-one structural engineering software. Not only modeling, but also analysis got a lot easier! You can perform analyses for Construction Stage and Final Composite Stage with only a single click!

Everything you need to learn before designing composite beams and slabs are given in this design guide!
