Midas Civils - composite section

Question:

Good morning,

 

I am using Midas civils to create a grillage model for a steel composite deck.

 

What value do you insert in ‘Bc’ field for the width of the deck [this is within the properties – section – composite tab]

 

Would you use the full width or the effective width?

 

If you use the full width, would the software consider the effective section?

 


 

Regards


Answer:

Hi,

It is recommended to use the effective width. The software does not automatically consider effective width.

Regards,
