Hello,

Can anyone help me understand the design of a composite structural steel beam using an example?

I have to check if I can add an additional floor to an existing steel building and all the secondary members have failed(I use STAAD.Pro).

Since STAAD.Pro does not support composite design for IS code, I was wondering if anyone could help me understand design of composite construction.

Thanks and regards,
Arun Kumar
