Advancing Steel Structures with Composite Floor Systems

Advancing Steel Structures with Composite Floor Systems


Provided By: New Millennium Building Systems
September 11, 2018

For a typical building project, the construction and design team face a range of choices in steel-based floor systems. One of the team’s biggest hurdles to clear is selecting the most appropriate, functional, and cost-effective floor system. The structure should benefit project delivery, offer design efficiencies, and withstand the test of time. 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion, participant will be able to:

  • DESCRIBE the use of composite floor systems to reduce structural framing costs and simplify construction sequencing to create a unified load-bearing system. 
  • DISCUSS how long-span deck systems achieve open structures to maximize clear spans with effective framing weight reductions. 
  • LIST the applications and relative benefits of composite joist and deck that can be used as floor systems. 
  • DESCRIBE how composite floor systems have been employed in various building types and applications, including new construction, adaptive reuse, multi-story and large-venues.
