Design of Braced Steel I-Beam Assemblies Without Rigid Decking

Various arrangements of braced steel I-beam assemblies (without rigid decking) occur at the construction stuges of composite bridges and in many permanent structures. Design difficulty relating to the preservation of stability and dimensional tolerance (avoiding overstress) for these structures has been experienced and witnessed. This paper identifies appropriate methods for checking the adequacy of typical steelwork arrangements. E. Jeffers
