Numerical Analysis on Loading Capacity of Continuous Composite Slab with Steel Deck


Article Preview

Composite slab with steel sheeting deck is considered a continuous slab when it is under a constructional situation. Nevertheless, many recent researches are focused on simply supported slab. In order to determine the load carrying capacity regarding various rebar ratio on negative moment region, a numerical analysis was carried out by using finite element analysis. The result of analysis shows that the reinforced steel rebar increases load carrying capacity. Moreover, it has shown that the reinforced length of steel rebar also affect the load carrying capacity.
