Newly updated, Floor Framing helps engineers determine optimal composite steel and concrete slab on metal deck floor framing. It can design a typical interior bay and optimize the results for either the overall weight or relative cost of a framing system. Each such evaluation is based on strength, deflection limits, and vibration for walking excitation.
This version now supports ANSI/AISC 360-05 and 360-10, as well as shape data from both the 13th and 14th Editions of the Steel Construction Manual. There is also now an option to use the lower bond moment of inertia for composite sections.
