Cambering of Steel Beamsby Lawrence A. Kloiber, L.L. LeJeune Co, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Steel Structures
Abstract: Cold cambering with force in the fabrication shop is an effective and economical method of compensating for deflections of composite beams. Typical beams should be cambered for dead load of the concrete slab, the super-imposed dead load, and a part of the long term live load. In typical floors camber remaining after placing the slab other dead loads should not exceed 1/2 inch to allow for proper installation of finish materials.
