COMPOSITE BEAM DESIGN AISC-LRFD 360-05
Technical Note
Bending and Deflection Checks

This Technical Note describes how the program checks bending and deflection
for AISC-LRFD 360-05 design.

Bending Check Locations


For each design load combination the program checks bending at the follow-
ing locations:

 Point of maximum moment for the design load combination considered.

 Point load locations for the design load combination considered.

Bending Check at Point of Maximum Moment


For beams with no axial load, or when axial loads are not considered, the
program uses Equation 1 to perform bending checks for both composite and
noncomposite beams. If there is axial load to be considered, the interaction
formulas described in Composite Beam Design AISC-LRFD 360-05 Technical
Note Moment Capacity for Steel Section Alone are used rather than Equation
1.

where,

Mu = The maximum required flexural strength, that is, the maximum


applied factored moment, kip-in.

Mn = Moment capacity for full composite connection or partial com-


posite connection, as applicable, kip-in.

 = Resistance factor for bending, unitless. For positive bending in a


composite beam with an assumed plastic stress distribution,

bcpp is used. For negative bending in a composite beam with an


assumed plastic stress distribution, bcnp is used. For positive
bending in a composite beam with an assumed elastic stress
distribution, bcpe is used. For negative bending in a composite
beam with an assumed elastic stress distribution, bcne is used.
If the beam is specified to be noncomposite, b is used.

If there is axial load to be considered, the interaction formulas described in

for Steel Section Alone are used rather than Equation 1.

Bending Check at Point Loads


The bending check at point load locations is performed by applying Equation 9
in Composite Beam Design AISC-LRFD 360-05 Technical Note Shear Connec-
tors at the point load location. See the next section entitled "Bending Checks"
for additional information.

Deflection Check
Deflection is calculated as described in Composite Beam Design Technical
Note Beam Deflection and Camber. For full composite connection Itr is used in
the deflection calculations. For partial composite connection Ieff is used in the
deflection calculations.
