Composite beam design at elevated temperature: comparisons between different temperature distributions in the concrete flange
Several resources give guidance on the temperature profile through composite slabs; BS 5950-8, EN 1994-1-2 and NCCI PN005C-GB. Ricardo Pimentel of the SCI discusses the impact of these alternative profiles on the design of composite beams at elevated temperature.
