Elastic Stresses in Unshored Composite Section
The elastic stresses at any location shall be the sum of
stresses caused by appropriate loads applied separately
Steel beam
Permanent loads applied before the slab has hardened, are
carried by the steel section.
Short

term composite section
Transient loads (such as live loads) are assumed to be carried
by short

term composite action. The short

term modular ratio,
n
, should be used.
Long

term composite section.
Permanent loads applied after the slab has been hardened are
carried by the long

term composite section. The long

term
modular ratio, 3
n
, should be used.

permanent load inflection points in continuous beams).

Consist of plates of angles bolted or welded to either one or

Transverse stiffeners may be used as connection plates for

When they are not used as connection plates, then they shall
tight fit the compression flange, but need not be in bearing
with tension flange
When they are used as connection plates, they should be
welded or bolted to both top and bottom flanges

The stiffener strength must be greater than that required for
TFA to develop. Therefore, the area requirement is:
If this equation gives A

negative, it means that the web alone
is strong enough to develop the TFA forces. The stiffener
must be proportions for m.o.i. and width alone
6.10.11 Design of Stiffeners
Bearing Stiffeners must be placed on the web of built

up
sections at all bearing locations. Either bearing stiffeners will
be provided or the web will be checked for the limit states of:
Web yielding
–
Art. D6.5.2
Web crippling
–
Art. D6.5.3
Bearing stiffeners will consist of one or more plates or
angles welded or bolted to both sides of the web. The
stiffeners will extend the full depth of the web and as closely
as practical to the outer edges of the flanges.
The stiffeners shall be either mille to bear against the flange
or attached by full penetration welds.
6.10.11 Design of Stiffeners
To prevent local buckling before yielding, the following
should be satisfied.
The factored bearing resistance for the fitted ends of
bearing stiffeners shall be taken as:
The axial resistance shall be determined per column
provisions. The effective column length is 0.75D
It is not D because of the restraint offered by the top and
bottom flanges.

General Considerations
Shear studs are needed to transfer the horizontal shear
that is developed between the concrete slab and steel
beam.
AASHTO

LRFD requires that full transfer (i.e. full
composite action) must be achieved.
Shear studs are placed throughout both simple and
continuous spans.
Two limit states must be considered: fatigue and shear.
Fatigue is discussed later.

Placement
A sufficient number of shear studs should be placed
between a point of zero moment and adjacent points of
maximum moment.
It is permissible to evenly distribute the shear studs along
the length they are needed in (between point of inflection
and point of maximum moment), since the studs have the
necessary ductility to accommodate the redistribution that
will take place.
Miscellaneous Rules
Minimum length = 4 x stud diameter
Minimum longitudinal spacing = 4 x stud diameter
Minimum transverse spacing = 4 x stud diameter
Maximum longitudinal spacing = 8 x slab thickness
Minimum lateral cover = 1".
Minimum vertical cover = 2”.
Minimum penetration into deck = 2”
