Answer:
In CS4, the concrete deck is casted and activated at the same stage. Kindly, activate the composite portion of the deck in next stage (CS5) with the desired age which I guess will be 28 days as the CSLL (Load denoting wet concrete) is deactivated at this stage which is 28 days after CS4. 




Update the composite section for construction stage value for other section.
