SAP2000 provides various ways to model the composite behavior of a beam-slab assembly. Attached are four SAP2000 models which demonstrate various approaches. The geometric and material properties of the model used for comparison are listed as follows:
- Modeling composite behavior in SAP2000.zip (zipped SDB file), which contains:
- SAP2000 V12.0.0 file which demonstrates the modeling of composite behavior for eight fixed beams.
- SAP2000 V12.0.0 file which demonstrates the modeling of composite behavior for eight simply supported beams.
- Sketches which illustrate the modeling of composite, noncomposite, and partially composite behavior.
NOTE: The attached file, Modeling composite behavior in SAP2000.zip, may be emailed directly to users to answer support questions.
