The design of composite beams for floor framing systems is one of the most common systems in the structural steel industry. This presentation will review some of the minimum requirements for composite beam design, including a discussion on what “percent composite” means and the AISC Specification language that discusses this aspect.


Susan Burmeister began her career in Atlanta, GA before coming to the Metropolitan Washington DC area in 2004. She graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. She has extensive experience with concrete and steel structural design and began contributing to AISC Task Committee 5, Composite Design almost 20 years ago. She co-authored the recent AISC Design Guide 36 on Camber, and she has given presentations on composite design at several NASCC Conferences as well as AISC Night School and SEI University.
