Composite Beam Design Software

Software Overview

Kingspan Composite Beam Design software provides a simple online tool for the design of composite steel beams using it’s Multideck 50, Multideck 60 and Multideck 80 composite steel decking systems to meet the requirements of either BS EN 1994-1-1: 2004 (Eurocode 4) or BS 5950: Part 3: 1990 + A1: 2010, using just one stud per trough in many design cases.

The software offers design solutions for secondary beams supporting uniformly distributed loads and primary beams supporting point loads at both mid and third points of the span. During the construction stage the secondary beam compression flange is assumed to fully restrained by the Multideck system, whilst the primary beam compression flange is assumed to be restrained at the relevant load application points.
