Continuous Construction in Steel for Roofs and Composite Floors

A form of limited continuous construction: suitable for use in multistorey buildings designed as non-sway frames, is described. The method employs a two-way grid of beam and continuous tibs sitting on double spine beam which pass on each side of the columns. Fabrication and erection are thereby simplified. A number of design issues raised by the use of continuous composite beam, continuous beam restrained by roof decking and columns subject to biaxial bending are discussed in the light of both current Codes of Practice and recent research.
