Composite slabs with profiled steel sheeting
01.10.2015 13:15

Greetings,
Is it possible and how to model composite slabs with profiled steel sheeting in tekla structures? I figured out how to model profiled steel sheeting alone with floor layout component, but I don't know how to put concrete fill on it.
Best regards.

Hi,
I made a composite slab with sheeting and filled in concrete. See the image below!
1. Use Floor layout tool in Component catalog to create a slab with two layers, bottom is metal sheeting, top one is concrete layer.
2. Next adjust the concrete layer to the suitable position, and use Polygon Cut to cut the concrete layer by the sheeting profile.
Then it will become the composite slab! I just came up with this idea to making the composite slab. But not sure if there is any other advanced approach to achieve this.
