Design of Long-Span Composite Steel Deck Slabs

Design of Long-Span Composite Steel Deck Slabs

April 22, 2019

Long-span composite steel deck slabs blend the speed and versatility of steel construction with the performance and durability of concrete, enabling a holistic approach to space-efficient structural designs.  They are engineered to reduce story height while maximizing ceiling height and address market-specific building requirements. This course reviews the design criteria for long-span composite steel deck slabs and shows how they can be designed to increase available space, enhance structural performance, and reduce total project costs. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the components of a composite floor system and explain why a steel deck composite floor system can reduce costs and provide a simple, efficient, safe method of construction.
  • Analyze composite slab design criteria and calculations to show how a span can be increased and meet strength and deflection requirements without a significant increase to the weight of a slab.

  • Reference industry standards and discuss how long-span steel deck composite floor systems can achieve open structures and comply with sound transmission and floor vibration design criteria (which can dictate occupant comfort) common to residential or commercial construction.

  • Evaluate different types of composite deck profiles and recall case studies where long-span composite steel deck slabs have been successfully used in different new and retrofit applications, including parking garages, specialty platforms, and multistory residential, commercial, healthcare, and educational buildings.
