This program will assist in sizing simply supported , composite castellated beams with point and uniformly distributed loads. All areas shaded yellow or with a drop box require input information. Contact CMC Steel Products toll free at (877) 764-2326 for furher information or assistance.
Construction bridging is required for castellated beams only when one or both ends are either seated or bearing. OSHA requires construction bridging to be installed to meet the following loading conditions: 1. A 300 lb. man at midspan. This condition requires bolted X-bridging to be installed before the hoisting cables are removed. 2. One 4,000 lb. bundle of deck to be placed over three beams no further than 1'-0" from the end of the beam. This condition requires horizontal bridging to be in place before deck bundles are placed.
HOW TO SPECIFY:
Castellated beams can be specified in one of the following methods:
1. Direct Specification:
When using direct specification the beam is specified in the same manner as a wide flange beam. For example, CB27x40, CB stands for Castellated Beam, nominally 27 inches deep weighing 40 pounds per foot. In composite construction, significant weight savings can be achieved by using a heavier tee section on the bottom and a lighter section on the top. This is known as an assymetric section. An example of this specification is CB27x35/46. As before, CB stands for Castellated Beam, nominally 27 inches deep. The beam is manufactured from a 35 pound per foot beam on top and a 46 pound per foot on bottom. Several common assymetric sections can be selected in the design program. In order to accommodate production processes, CMC Steel Products may from time to time provide an equivolent symetrical size.
WARNINGS & ERRORS:
The following are errors and will cause the program to not report results: 1. "e < emin" - e must be at least 3" to provide connection material. 2. "dt < dtmin" - dt must be greater than dtmin for fabrication reasons. 3. "e/tw > 30", "2h/e > 8", "Phi > 62", "Phi < 43" - no research has been performed on the web post buckling outside these limitations. 4. "h/tw > 970/(Fy^0.5)" - the web slenderness exceeds the design procedure. 5. "Point loads must start w/ P1 farthest left" - Point loads must be entered starting with P1 farthest left and ending with P4 farthest right. The following are warnings but will not cause errors in the program: 1. "Top or Bottom Tee Slender" - allowable stress on tee section has been reduced per Qs. 2. "ds > 2.5*tf" - stud diameter must be less than or equal to 2.5*flange thickness. 3. "Studs too long" - shear studs must allow for at least 1/2" clear between the top of the stud and the surface of the slab. 4. "Studs too short" - shear studs must be at least 1 1/2" taller than the ribs of the deck. 5. "tc < 2" - concrete must be at least 2" above the flutes of the deck.
2. Performance Specification:
A performance specification is the best way to insure the beam is designed as efficiently as possible. An example of a perfomance specification is: CB27(1100/560/500). CB stands for Castellated Beam, nominally 27 inches deep, (Total Load/Live Load/Precomposite Dead Load). CMC Steel Products will provide the most efficient shape (symetric or assymetric) to support specified loadings.
USE OF PROGRAM:
1. Enter job name and design mark (not required). 2. Enter the beam configuration: span (110'-0" max), spacing (left & right), material strength (36 or 50), and connection type. If beams longer than 110' are needed please call CMC Steel Products for availability. 3. Enter concrete properties (strength, weight, & thickness), deck properties (height & width), and stud properties (diameter, number/rib, & length), and percent composite. 4. Enter loading. Program allows (1) uniform live load, (1) uniform dead load, and up to (4) point loads. In order to verify the adequacy of the pre-composite beam, the percent present before the concrete has hardened should be entered as well. The four point loads should be entered starting with P1 and ending with P4. 5. Press Stnd. Geom. button. This enters the standard castellation pattern corresponding to the given castellated beam. 6. Choose a trial castellated beam. If all interaction values shown on the screen are less than 1.000, the beam is OK.
N MN L T R : O E CAU E
e = web post width & tee length b = width of sloped portion dt = tee depth dg = castellated beam depth tc = conc. thick. above the flutes hr = height of deck, ds = stud dia. fc' = 28 day concrete strength wc = unit weight of concrete d = depth of root beam bf = flange width tf = flange thickness tw = web thickness ho = height of hole wo = width of hole S = hole spacing
All of the failure modes and their corresponding interaction values are shown in the results section. All values must be less than or equal to 1.000 for the beam to be OK. Press the "Find Lightest Shape" button to have the program select the lightest shape with a standard castellation pattern. Significant strength improvements can be achieved by modifying the castellation pattern. The following guidelines will help in the optimization. 1. To increase shear or web post strength, increase "e". 2. To increase bending strength, decrease "e". 3. If point loads are a significant portion of the load, increase "dt". ***You can return to standard geometry by pressing the "Stnd. Geom." button***
SHEAR STUD DESIGN:
The program will design the shear studs based on the composite design values selected. You can choose either full or partial composite. The program will space studs for point loads only if the loading is symetric. If the loading is not symetric, the program will not supply the stud spacing.
