Compos: Composite Beams Design Software

Compos is a unique composite beam analysis and design software program. In addition to composite beam design and analysis, Compos can also perform footfall induced vibration analysis for regular composite floors using Resotec Damping System.

Composite beam design software program with unique features

The latest major release includes a variety of innovative new features and usability advancements. Axial loads can be applied, end moments are now included, COM API enhancements, updated section and decking databases, updated sign conventions, and much more. Visit the Features tab for a more detailed look.

Compos can handle composite beams with variable slab widths and thicknesses, tapered plate girders as well as web penetrations and notches, with or without stiffeners. Compos is used by many engineers looking for a complete composite beam analysis and design software offering.

Analyse the effects of using the Resotec Damping System from Richard Lees Decking, exclusive to Compos. Other unique features to Compos include tapering plate girders and variable slab widths and thicknesses.

How Compos Works

Input: Using intuitive model wizards and tables, define straight, stepped, and tapered rolled steel beams and plate girders supporting catalogue composite decking at any angle, topped with constant or varying depth and width normal or lightweight concrete. Define the stud spacing or let Compos decide the best arrangement based on desired interaction and decking trough dimensions. Include penetrations through the beam web or notches at the beam ends to reduce the beam capacity. Add Resotec damping membrane when footfall vibration is a problem.

Analysis & Design: Compos will either analyse the chosen beam to check whether it meets the ultimate and serviceability requirements both during construction and after, or it will find the lightest or shallowest beam that will. Compos will also measure the centre point and centre line footfall vibration response for the bay.

Output: Compos will output the detailed calculations, diagrams, and drawings of the composite beams or give the summary of the beams’ design results.

Key Features & Benefits

  1. Analyse and design studded composite and non-composite steel beams with ease
  2. Design to ultimate and serviceability limit states
  3. Footfall induced vibration analysis for regular composite floor with and without Resotec Damping System from Richard Lees Decking. No other software can consider Resotec Damping in footfall analysis.

Capabilities of Compos

  • Axial loads can be applied at beam ends
  • Axial loads can be tensile or compressive
  • Moment due to eccentricity is applied

 

  • Compos now supports moments at the ends
  • Hogging moments are treated as positive and vice versa

It is now possible to extract the detailed results including section properties, forces, capacities, deflections, stresses and stud arrangement at all the positions.

short NumIntermediatePos (membername)

Return the number of intermediate positions where analysis results are available.

double Result (membername, option, position)

Return the results for the given member, option and position

position – position number

option – result type

Section database

  • Compos now uses latest section database from GSA

Decking database

  • Database is now updated to include latest catalogues
  • Old database is now flagged as superseded

Sign convention in Compos is now made consistent with GSA

  • Axial force – Tensile forces are positive
  • Moments – Hogging moments are positive
  • Deflections – Downward deflection is negative

Analyse and design composite beams

Analyse and design composite steel beams at the construction and final stages, including automatic beam and stud selection. Link the beam together if necessary, so that secondary beams load primary beams. Design the beams to the ultimate and serviceability limit states, such as vibration frequency, deflection, beam weight and depth.

Examples of analysis options

Automatic Section and Stud Design

Save time and effort as Compos can automatically design a steel section from the national and international section database to meet code requirements and other criteria specified by the user. In addition to section design, Compos can also automatically design quantity and distribution of shear studs or check your beam arrangements. Reducing time required even further.

Footfall induced vibration

Calculate the response factor from footfall-induced vibration (composite beam footfall) with or without Resotec Damping System from Richard Lees Steel Decking. Read more about what the analysis is based on in the Further Considerations tab.

Floor response graph

Analyse web penetration and notches

Web penetrations and notches, with or without stiffeners, analysed in accordance with the Steel Construction Institute Publication 068 “Design for Opening in the webs of composite beams”.

 

When using Compos, it considers a couple of important factors including:

  • Web penetrations on steel beam and notches at steel beam ends with or without stiffeners.
  • Variable slab widths and thicknesses.

Analysis: Analysis and design of steel-concrete composite beams at construction and final stages.

 

Footfall induced vibration analysis is based on:

  • Willford, M.R. & Young, P. (2006) A Design Guide for Footfall Induced Vibration of Structures, The Concrete Centre, CCIP-016.

Resotec damping calculation is based on:

  • Ross, D, Ungar, E E & Kerwin, E M, “Damping of plate flexural vibration by means of viscoelastic laminae”.
  • Analysis and design of composite steel beams, including automatic beam and stud selection
  • Tapering plate girders
  • Variable slab widths and thicknesses
  • Web penetrations and notches, with or without stiffeners
  • Design to ultimate and serviceability limit states, such as vibration frequency, deflection, beam weight and depth
  • Link beams together, so that secondary beams load primary ones
  • Footfall induced vibration checks – calculate the Response Factor
  • Analyse the effects of using the Resotec Damping System from Richard Lees Steel Decking. No other program gives you this.

Load types: Choose from a selection of different load types such as area UDL, linear UDL, point and triangular loads as well as loads from other members.

Compos options: With Compos, there are numerous options available for the user such as:

  • Automatically select the optimum steel beam according to minimum weight or minimum depth criteria
  • Design shear stud layout automatically
  • Use tapered steel plate girders
  • Use catalogue decking slab, user defined decking slab or solid slab
  • Use standard or user defined materials and partial safety factors
  • Use propped or unpropped construction method
