## Composite Beam Design

Given:
A series of 45-ft. span composite beams at 10 ft. o/c are carrying the loads shown below. The beams are ASTM
A992 and are unshored. The concrete has / c ^ 4 ksi. Design a typical floor beam w i t l ( 3 ^ ^ ^ 8 gage composite deck,
and 4!/2 in. normal weight concrete above the deck, for fire protection and mass. Selep? an appropriate beam and
determine the required number of shear studs.
