The beam is a UKB profile in bending about the strong axis. This example includes : the classification of the cross-section, the calculation of the effective width of the concrete flange, the calculation of shear resistance of a headed stud, the calculation of the degree of shear connection, the calculation of bending resistance, the calculation of shear resistance, the calculation of longitudinal shear resistance of the slab, the calculation of deflection at serviceability limit state.

Section classification : The parameter is derived from the yield strength : = Note :

235 = 0.81 f y [N/mm2 ]

The classification is made for the non composite beam. For the (sheet 2 of 3) composite beam the classification is more favourable.

Outstand flange : flange under uniform compression

c = (b tw 2 r) / 2 = (146.4 6.3 2 7.6)/2 = 62.45 mm c/tf = 62.45 / 10.9 = 5.73 9 = 7.29

c / tw = 219.0 / 6.3 = 34.76 < 72 = 58.32

The class of the cross-section is the highest class (i.e the least favourable) between the flange and the web, here : Class 1 So the ULS verifications should be based on the plastic resistance of the cross-section since the Class is 1.
Effective width of concrete flange At mid-span, the total effective width may be determined by :
beff,1 = b0 + bei

EN 1994-1-1 5.4.1.2

b0 is the distance between the centres of the outstand shear connectors, here b0 = 0 ;

(figure 5.1) Only applicable if bei is the value of the effective width of the concrete flange on each side of the there is more than web and taken as bei = Le / 8 but bi = 3.0 m one shear connector for each beff,1 = 0 + 7.5 / 8 = 0.9375 m, then beff = 2 0.9375 = 1.875 m < 3.0 m rib At the ends, the total effective width is determined by :
beff,0 = b0 + ibei

EN 1994-1-1 5.4.1.2 (figure 5.1)

With i = (0.55 + 0.025 Le / bei) but 1.0 = (0.55 + 0.025 7.5 / 0.9375) = 0.75 beff,0 = 0 + 0.75 7.5 / 8 = 0.703 m, then beff = 2 0.703 = 1.406 m < 3.0 m

Not needed for simple calcs. See clause 6.1.2(2)

Ac is the cross-sectional area of concrete, so at mid-span Ac = beff hc with hc = h - hp = 120 58 = 62 mm, Ac = 1875 62 = 116250 mm2 So,

Le is the distance in sagging bending between points of zero bending moment in metres, for our example : Le = 7.5 m So, Then,

min = 1 (355 / 355) (0.75 0.03 7.50) = 0.475 min = 0.475 < = 0.582 OK

So, Npl,a > Nc = Nc,f = 959 kN With the ductile shear connectors and the cross-section of the steel beam in Class 1, the resistance moment of the critical cross-section of the beam MRd at mid span is calculated by means of rigid-plastic theory except that a reduced value of the compressive force in the concrete flange Nc is used in place of the force Ncf. Here, the plastic stress distribution is given below :
