A parametric study using the detailed modeling approach is carried out to investigate the influence of the thermal boundary conditions, thermal properties of materials, and slab geometry on the temperature distribution in the composite slab. The results show that the rib height of the decking and the width at
Chapter from the book Advances in Composite Materials - Analysis of Natural and Man- last decade especially with its properties and advantages that attracted researchers such as: high durability, Low with residential applications such as decking, the need for the alternative survived the WPC.
The Steel and Composite Deck Designer is a software option that carries out comprehensive calculations for multiple sections on steel or steel/composite bridge Multiple sections with different properties (haunches, stiffeners, etc) can be considered, as can bolted connections. .

materials. In this paper we examine the performance of wood-plastic composite (WPC) decking and its environmental properties. We also highlight a recently completed life cycle analysis. (LCA) and comparison of WPC decking and western red cedar decking. The recent third-party. LCA study considered a
This article reviews the appropriate analysis and modelling techniques for typical steel-composite bridges in the UK. While grillage analysis is widely used, and is still considered to be most appropriate for most bridge decks, it is recognised that finite element analysis programs are becoming more widely available and

Application of Editing Note: Include following design data if structural analysis is a Project requirement. 4. Design Data:
analyse the composite deck models. To build up the 3D-model of a composite deck panel two types of finite element are used as follows: • Thin shell elements (QSL8) to model the steel sheet. • 3D-solid elements (HX20) to model the concrete slab. Table 2 gives the material properties used in the analysis, which are taken
