Tips for Efficiently Designing Composite Steel Beams

Composite steel construction is an excellent tool in a structural engineer's toolbox, allowing you to gain significant efficiencies when combining steel and concrete. Engineers specifying composite steel beam construction in their designs benefit from reduced steel weight, better stiffness characteristics and economic advantages over conventional steel or reinforced concrete options. However, these benefits do come with increased complexity on the design side.

In this webinar, we'll be diving into useful features and introducing tips to get the most out of your composite steel structures. Learn more about the multiple features structural engineers can use to help tackle these challenges and ensure designs are completed in an effective manner.
