Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures


An experimental investigation was conducted at California State University - Long Beach to study the structural behavior of composite beams made of thin-walled cold-formed steel stiffened channel and concrete subjected to shear and bending stresses. It was found that by replacing the conventional steel reinforcing bars with thin-walled cold-formed sections of equal cross sectional areas, the ultimate strength of the composite beams in bending and shear can be achieved.
