Deflection Analysis of Composite Structures using the Rate-of-Creep Method

A time-dependent method of analysis is presented for calculating the deflection of statically determinate composite steel-concrete members under constant sustained loads. The cross-sectional analysis is applicable to a general, monosymmetric, composite section, and Dischinger’s differential constitutive relationship is used to model the inelastic creep and shrinkage strains that develop with time in the concrete.
