Abstract

This paper discusses the finite elements analysis of composite beams with openings in metal-ribbed decking slabs. The current study is based on nonlinear three dimensional (3D) finite elements simulation. The model has been validated using test data. Close agreement has been observed between the finite element model and experimental results for ultimate load and load-deflection response. Parametric studies have been performed to investigate variations in opening size. It has been found that these factors have significantly affected the structural behaviour of the composite beam. From parametric study, formula to calculate rigidity of composite beam with openings in slab has been proposed.
