Effective width for the composite section

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?


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