Moment resistance for partial shear connection

Consider pairs of shear connectors per rib with a degree of shear connection, =

Use the linear interaction method:

NB: For uniformly distributed load, shear at the supports does not influence the
moment resistance of the section.

Transverse reinforcement
Use A142 mesh reinforcement in the slab.
Check resistance of concrete flange to splitting:
Shear resistance per shear surface, VRd

FL = 2  52/(0,3  2) = 176 kN/m Cl …
tan = FH/FL = 65/176 = 0,37 < 0.5 not OK
It follows that the amount of transverse reinforcement is not acceptable without
considering the beneficial influence of the profiled decking. For pairs of shear
connectors per rib, the effect of end anchorage is included, as follows:
Ppd,Rd = 6,0  19  0,9  350  10–3 = 36 kN per stud
FH = 65 + 36 = 101 kN
tan = FH/FL = 101/176 = 0,57 > 0.5 OK
 = 30 to the axis of the beam
Compression force along the slab

Compression resistance of slab
FC = fchc s sin
= 9  60  sin30  103  10–3 = 270 kN/m > 102 kN/m OK
It follows that A142 mesh is acceptable for this case. For the case where the
profiled decking is discontinuous, increase the mesh size to A193.

Serviceability Limit States

No stress checks are required in Eurocode 4-1-1 for normal conditions.

Self weight of slab and beam qd = 2,81 kN/m2

From properties in sheet 2, the deflection of the steel beam due to the self weight

The imposed load part of this deflection is 19.1mm.
For pairs of shear connectors per rib, the degree of shear connection is 66%, in
which case, the effects of slip do not have to be considered.
No deflection limits are given in BS EN 1993-1-1 and the designer should refer to
national requirements. The imposed load deflection is less than the deflection limit
of L/360 in BS 5950-1, and indicates that the beam is acceptably stiff.

Total deflection

Construction stage = 32,5 mm

Imposed load = 19,0 mm (no slip effect)
Ceiling and services = 1,9 mm
Total 53,5 mm [= L/244]
Normally, in UK practice, the limit on the maximum total deflection for a
L
composite beam is (= 60 mm), which is satisfactory and is within the range of
200
adjustment on the raised floor and suspended ceiling.
To BS EN 19931-1, the suggested total deflection limit is L/250= 48 mm, which is
not satisfied using this beam. However, pre-cambering would not normally be
considered for abeam with a span of 12 m. In this case, it may be appropriate to
consider nominal partial fixity of the connections to reduce deflections.

Conclusions
The beam size 457  191  74 kg/m UKB in S 355 steel is satisfactory for a 12 m
span secondary beam. The Unity Factor on bending resistance is 0.74, when using
S355 steel. Shear connectors may be placed in pairs per deck rib at 300mm
centres in which case, the degree of shear connection is 66%. The design is
strongly influenced by the requirements for limitation of total deflections, rather
than the bending resistance or other serviceability criteria. It would have been
possible to use S275 steel for this secondary beam design.
